Version A: 7 x 600s L on 3-5-2018 and 25-3-2019

Version B, added:

6 x 600 s L &R and 3x 600s each G & B on 30-13-2019

Unfortunately the data is not great due to mediocre sky transparency and seeing, but so far it is all I've got...

Colour Calibration was done automatically by the PhotometricColorCalibration process in PixInsight. This works really well!
