Description

The Crescent Nebula in LRGBHa, need to fix some optical issues as the OAG prism is intruding into the light path to much and the camera needs a bit of a tilt adjustment. Not bad for the AT65EDQ's first image.

Also need to work a little more on combining the Ha data as we have some star holes... :-)
