My first ever DSO attempt.
After 20 years wishing to do it and accumulating gear with the hope to take the plunge one day I finally acquired a mono camera and filter wheel last week.
Also First attempt at using PixInsight

I was originally planning to do 60 Ha subs but reached mounts limit and was too tired to meridian flip and reframe for the second half.
Second version will have 60 subs of each SOH with dithering and all that fancy stuff
