Description

M45 from my backyard in heavy light pollution. I should have had more data for this one, but the moron who made the setup last night screwed up a little and about 40mins of exposure were scrapped. I combined the remaining 1h20 with data from November 2013. Also, I didn't have the LP filter for the 2013 data.
