Description

Quick outing for the RC to see what it looks like and to figure out what issues I have.
Unguided as tried OAG and that failed so guide scope now in place - no flats as yet. Will update with new data as I go through and share any tips I pick up along the way.

Rev B - This is just 4x600 taken last night as part of my testing of ACP - which worked a treat. With the dust bunnies sorted, the scope at f5.3 (1340mm) the data is now starting to come together again. With the scope now performing it will be ready to go into the obsy. The final bit was learning ACP which was fairly easy just need to get the scheduler sorted and grab some more data.
Just need to figure why I lost guiding after the pier flip and then can get on with gathering some more data - sounds like another night watching the mount ;)

Rev C - Managed to grab a little RGB but due to wind only 25% of subs could be used.
Now need to wait for clear night with little wind and will add data so I can pull out some of the finer detail - due to lack of subs having to be more aggressive with NR than I would like but thought I would share the slow progress.

Rev D- Removed red hue a little
Rev F - More Lum acquired but still learning!
Rev G - Same data but now applying all the new techniques I have learnt over last week. Think they have made a marked improvement to my earlier attempts. Now just need to go back and redo all the other images to refine the process - oh joy!
Rev H - A little darker again tablet and other monitor not same representation as calibrated monitor and core not as good as I see here on previous version so hopefully this is a happy medium.
