Description

Close to 23 hours of exposure with a DSLR and Televue 85 shot in the fall of 2014...several nights in September, October and November. I reached the limits of what my sky fog will allow. This is an extremely faint object and clearly needs larger aperture. I will need to re-visit from a darker site and larger scope.
