9 x 600s R, seeing wasn't great and it was quite windy. This is a promising subject with the nice whisp of nebulosity in front of the galaxy. I hope to get some G & B images soon.
The B revision is a combination of 600s integrations, 7 x B, 9 x G & R and 5 x L. The RGB luminance was added to the 5 L-frames to get a bit more signal. I need more frames!
There were some clouds, so I had to reject quite a lot of images, hope to add more soon!
Colour balance was done using the galaxy as white reference, otherwise the image is mainly yellow due to all the dust in this region of the sky.
Revision C : Acquired some more G & B on October 26th and L-data on October 28th. This one shows the IFN a bit better. 24xL, 9xR, 16xG and 20xB totals 11.3 hours.
Final: Added some more frames and made a SuperLuminance from all combined LRGB frames, now a total of 16 hours integration time.
