Took these on 19th April 16. At that time of year Gemini would be setting in the West, and going by me notes, it was only 3 days to the full moon in the East. My first try at processing this wasn't the best.
I have since learnt the drizzle function as you calibrate and stack in Pixinsight, and what they call resize image too.
Now it's rising again in the east I'll go back to it and get a few hundred subs for this small planetary.
