Description

January was a busy month for me and my equipment. Here the final image from this period. The magnificent IC 342.

5h of Lum at 1270mm FL. The reducer is screaming loud at f5 :-)
The color comes from the previous drizzled and scaled up hyperstar data.
420mm -> 1270mm , a risky business.
