Description

I had a lot of data on this one, unfortunately with bad gradients from moon and even high clouds in the blue channel, leading to fuzzy stars. So it took a lot of fiddling around in PixInSight to get some kind of a presentable image.

I am quite happy with the galaxies, especially considering the 620mm scope I took them with which is far from ideal for this subject. It is the stars I am not happy with because I had to do a lot of color correction and ringing corrections.

Anyhow, it is there now, I hope you like it.
