Description

This is the second version of M57 at full focal lenght with the LX200 and a comparison to the previously uploaded one which was done with a Denkmeier Reducer the night before. As expected, the faint galaxy IC 1296 is not that obvious anymore than in the previous photography which was done at ~f6 versus f10 now.

Description: Was again experimenting with Starless and OnlyStar Images of that object via Straton with the aim of using those extracted images as masks in PI. Did darken the background and reduced star size.
