Description

I managed to obtain 73 subs of this at 3 minutes long each, which totals 3 hours and 39 minutes integration time. I still have this annoying issue of a tilt somewhere, messing up the shapes of the stars, especially on the far left. It is difficult enough balancing this big scope and getting round stars without this issue, but that is life! The wind has really got up here, not to mention a mixed bag of weather. I might be able to image something tonight, but it is a bit of a gale. Take care everyone, thanks...
