This is just 3 -10min subs. I have a very small window of opportunity for this target especially with the Solstice. I plan on trying to get data every time I start out. It may take a couple of years to finish this at this rate! I was so pleased with the data I just had to see what I had with 3 subs! Astrodon filters are incredible IMO!!
