Description

A combination of a couple of data sets, just over 30 hours of total integration time, helps make the best of this difficult, low surface brightness target.

Approx half the data from my Ceravolo 300 astrograph and Apogee U16M camera and the other half from Martin Pugh's remote Astro-Physics RH305 and SBIG STXL-16200 camera:
