Description

Just a few subs in last nights bonus clear spell. This was way past the meridian when I slewed to this, so pleased with the subs and stars, having noticed the head attaching to the mount was awry. Fingers crossed any misshapen stars are now due to collimation and balance, but this object is at the extreme limit westwards of the mount atm.

Rev B: Added a few more hours in RGB before the clouds rolled in. Need lots of Luminance still.
