Description

In cooperation with Marcel Drechsler.
Marcels frames:
9,5 h Ha
7,5 h OIII
1,0 h Luminance

Scope: 11" Celestron RASA (Rowe Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph)
Cam: ASI 1600 MMC

I processed frames from Marcels 11" RASA together with such from my 10" newtonian and my Takahashi Epsilon 130 D. It was hard work, but a lot of fun at the end.
