I started this in October. After 4 failed sessions, two due to clouds and 2 due to the Chinese not testing filter wheel components below 0 degrees, I then did a lukewarm effort in bringing an image together. I was going to categorize it to the failed pics of this season, but now after combining all the data from 4 sessions I got a passable image out of it.
