Description

9x R, 6x G, 8x B and 23x Lum, each 10 minutes on February 11, and March 7, 9 & 12. Unfortunately, the colour data is not good enough due to moisture, so I will do that again...

I made some extra colour frames, but unfortunately the sky was not transparent. I threw out some sub-optimal frames and reprocessed the image. It looks better now I think. The "searchlight" from top right is probably caused by 3rd magnitude Alpha Lyn, just outside the field of view.
