Description

What a bright halo. Did not expect this to be so prominent. A new watermark with respect to data aquisition: a little more than 4 hours this time. In the meantime I came to the conclusion that with the current scopes and the Canon 70Da a field radius of approx. 0,25 or 1,4 degrees respectively is depictable but sometimes it ought to be inbetween. Maybe it is time to aquire a different scope and or camera?

Description: Could not live with that halo around Navi. Did a complete reprocess and sorted out all thouse subs with huge halos. I ended up with 39 frames. What a loss of data. Obviously there were kind of high clouds rolling through that night.
