Description

Old data using the Atik Titan camera I hadn't processed yet.
The quality of the subs was pretty bad but apparently with their big number and my increased understanding of PixInsight, lots of details came out that were not present in another picture I posted a while ago (the subs were taken one day apart).
Anyway love this galaxy and looking forward to color and longer exposure subs with the new mount and camera!!
