Description

The weather wasn't perfect. From 5 sessions in total, only two nights were fruitful. And even during those nights, the cirrus armada was affecting the SNR badly.
Luckily the Hyperstar was able to cut through some of the thiner cirrus clouds and the everlasting haze.

It is my first light with a narrowband filter. The image is drizzled.
