Description

A huge thanks to Chris Sullivan for doing some final layers processing with two of my processed iterations to get this background where I wanted it!

This was the most difficult processing I've done - not sure why exactly but it was very difficult! I'm still not completely satisfied with it, I may give another go another time or add more data but I'm getting sick of it so calling it done for now.

It consists of two data sets:
165x120" + 31x180" (7 hours) - Edge 9.25 at f/7 and QHY367C
132x60" (2.2 hours) - Edge 9.25 at f/2.2 with Hyperstar and QHY183M
