Description

This is the Fornax Dwarf Galaxy from an advanced request I did at telescope.live. I had to split it over 2 different nights to get it all due to issues with acquisition and while I didn't get all the luminance I intended it still turned out decent to me. I figured a really diffuse galaxy like this could have either gone really bad or good, so I had to try it, and I am glad I did. I haven't seen anyone else post it before so here it is.
