    i know what you're thinking: not that thing again! i am here to tell you... yes, that thing again.

    it's one of the few DSOs i can actually get time on from my treehouse observatory.

    29.3h total, astrodon 5nm filters on STT-8300m, at6rc with 0.8x televue reducer.

    i think there might be a gradient left in the lower right corner, and this needs some RGB stars pretty badly.
