Description

Yeah, no crash/freeze this time on my GEM28! The whole session (around 5 hours) went without problems :-) Why not always like this...

I really only need more focal length for all the small galaxies like the Silver Sliver Galaxy and this one: NGC 3079 The Phantom Frisbee Galaxy, at 50 million light years distance.
