This year has been bad for AP here and I didnt really get enough time on any target . With the widefield rig mounted, I didnt have many targets out of nebulae targets and I figured M77 region will be interesting. However, I didnt get enough data for this as well. This had pretty bad gradients (moon and lp both were in play).

I am starting to hate the baader filters.. The blue filter is having reflection on bright stars.

Total integration is: 7.3 hours
