    This is another image from new remote setup in Marathon Texas. The equpiment is shared by myself and Dhaval Brambhatt.

    I was shooting this whenever moon was up and whenever the main target M82 was not up. The Ha data itsef is quite decent but couldnt manage to get good amount of OIII and SII . The guiding at meridian isnt good and the OIII/SII suffered as a result. Also, lots of dew problems resulting in bad SNR during SII and OIII (No dew heater at the moment).

    Processing was done with Hubble mapping and additional tweaks to it. The resolution itself is quite good in Ha and I am happy with the way it came out.

    Ha - 26x15min
    OIII - 6x15min
    SII - 12x15 min
