NGC 2841
Captured March 22, 2019 - Moon 97% Illuminated.
Had not been able to get out lately due to weather and scope badly out of collimation.
Seeing conditions were rough with Moon and some thin clouds and 5-10mph winds.
Captured data for 4 hours, used SubFrame Selection in PixInsight to remove subs based on various criteria resulting in 174x45s usable subs.
Considering challenges, think collimation is decent and overall sky glow was mostly corrected in post processing. First night using a trial of SGP for imaging, still need to get more experience with this.
