Description

Took these in October 15. Reprocessed them in Pixinsight today 6thMay16, while the clouds linger. combined as a HSO image.

Rev B: A week of clouds so reprocessed this on the 21st July 16. Same old data. But shows learning different techniques improve on how your end results turn out. Pixinsight combined as the same HSO.

Rev C: The same data but combined as a SHO.

Taken before I built my shed. You can see some lens tilt across the diagonal. :-(
