Description

This is my third time capturing data for this object as previous attempts have failed for various reasons. Even this one had its share of problems but I was able to finish it anyway. I took around 36 L subs and used the best 25 or so in mostly good seeing. 25x400s L 8x200s RGB 2x2 binned.
