Description

This is a nice one, need to get some colour data soon!
9 x 600s Luminance, the night was not that great and the telescope suffers from deformed star images due to a pinched main mirror. I will have to remedy that soon!

Added 3 x 600s L and 3 x 600s each RGB for a first colour version. The sky was not very good, so I have to be patient...
