M13 from 19.07.2014, first try with my new GSO 200/800. Also first try with a new stacking software, called Theli. I think in the end this will be the software I use instead of DSS, the level of detail you gain compared to DSS is enourmous. But still a lot to learn, centre of M13 is much to bright...
