Description

This has been a project over 11 nights to see how much a difference it makes with such a long integration time. I still have to adjust the backlash setting on my autofocuser to have a better focus and hope the next picture will have even sharper stars in the corners. I'm pretty satisfied with the end result and would love to hear constructive criticisms to enhance my capturing and processing skills.
