The goal of the two nights where this image was acquired was to test a new filter. Having very few clear nights I wanted to be able to capitalize on nights when the full moon was out. I purchased a V4 LPS filter to pair with my asi071 cooled color camera and happy with the results. This filter does block a large amount of the spectrum so there was still a large amount of noise in the resulting 4 hours and 20 minutes of data. I hope to acquire more data on this target the next couple of nights while we're still at peak moon time.
