Technical card

Basic astrometry details job: 1127900

RA center: 18h 3' 59"

DEC center: -24° 22' 40"

Pixel scale: 1.073 arcsec/pixel

This is a composite of 16 images on M8 with 152 minutes of exposure, Modified Canon 450 D, TOA 130 APO, Backyard EOS, PHD2 guiding and processed in Pixinsight - all new to me so loads of failures and much pain to get to this stage.
