Description

The night of imaging was really hot and APT told me that the sensor reached about 40°C. Accordingly, the resulting subs were pretty noisy. Only 80 minutes of integration time didn't help much either. So I didn't initally upload the image. But since the weather has been bad for about two months now and I wouldn't have access to my imaging spot due to lockdown even if it was clear, I reprocessed the image with some new settings. And reduced the noise of the background with Topaz AI. So here is my new go at the eastern veil.
