Description

Tried binning at 2x2 since I moved from hyperstar to prime focus with a 0.7x reducer. With a 2x2 bin my image scale goes up to 0.99 arcsecs / pixel so is a little bit more forgiving than the native 0.33 arcsecs/pixel. Overall pretty happy with this image considering I live in a very light polluted city outside of San Francisco.
