    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.
