Description

A full night of imaging for this object from home. Fortunately during the week, the public lights are switched off from midnight onwards. The sky was not very good to start with but improved towards the end, with SQM values of 20,74 popping up even just before twilight kicked in.

This is a simple run through APP with some slight PS finishing.
