Another set of data I had sitting gathering dust because I never bothered to process it until now. Very pleased with this one, although I do have some slight ringing artifacts within the galaxy itself that I may want to fix later. They're not terrible unless you're at maximum resolution and really pixel peeping, but still more than none which is what the goal is. Was fun to integrate this and compare it to the RH-305 image however, maybe one day I will combine the two to have the super detail of the galaxy, combined with the wide FOV offered by the 1159 mm focal length of the RH-305. Decisions!
