Description

This was taken over two rare clear nights. Unfortunately the clear nights corresponded with the nearly full moon. These are small objects for a 200mm focal length lens but cropping too heavily made the noise far too obvious.

The lens was stopped down to f/5.6.

I'm still learning my way around PixInsight and definitely have a long way to go, but I was able to try to rescue something out of data that was challenging (at least for me) to work with.

Looking forward to when I get my new SV80-3SV hooked up and capturing data.
