NGC 2903 - This was a "parking" target for me as I waited for M106 - but it was turning out quite nice. Then, one fine day (user error, I am sure) the rotator decided to turn on me and I did not take any flats. So, I just kept getting LUM data on this till I thought it was enough. During alignment, I was getting a very weird crop, so this is a heavily cropped field and I am missing a ton of galaxies on the edge of the FOV. I might come back to this target again, but for now, I am happy with this. I am adding Ha for this target, so I will update with a version that contains Ha, for now - this is just LRGB.
