Description

When my intervolemter and tablet failed because of the 20F degree temperatures, I had to resort to only 30s exposures using the internal timer. I wasn't expecting much, but thanks to the magic of PixInsight, I got more out of this image than I ever dreamed! I had no idea I could get dark nebulae like this from my Bortle 5 home imaging location. So excited to try more!
