Description

First imaging run where I have slept while it happened. I did get up to check on occasion, but left run till morning. Longest session to date, but ended up not using about 30% of subs. Still longest on any one target. Some massive halos - think this is down to the doublet. Tricky target for a scope prone to a little CA.
