Description

This is one i've been imaging for quite a few months and since i sold my Star 71 i won't be adding data to this. I was looking for something unusual to image and i came across this hiding in plain sight and thought it was worth a look. You can just make out the shock front center right of the image.

William Optics Star 71, Asi 1600

12.3 hrs some in 300 second subs with 300 gain, some with 60 seconds and 455 gain. I just lobbed all the subs in to APP and the result looked decent so i went with it. The shock front wasn't visible in the individual subs. As an image it's not pretty but worth it all the same.
