Description

I managed 52 subs of this at 4 minutes each, through my normal gear. I did do a drizzled version of this, but I had such trouble with the background that I gave up - in fact one of my reasons for giving up was due to how much computational time it took for my poor laptop to manage! Massive files!!!

That said, there was more detail in the galaxy, so drizzling does work, so with that in mind I may try again, as I believe I have improved on my noise reduction technique since. I might have to reduce the image size to do this also... If successful I may even try it for the Sombrero that I took the other day. We will see...
