Description

Centered on NGC 4622 A galaxy field in Centaurus in LRGB
Same field as earlier in clear but conditions and guiding deteriorated as it got to the blues.
This is with a QSI CCD camera and will be for comparison with a new ZWO Cmos color camera, hopefully tonight! From what I can see CMOS is wiping the floor with CCD but I chose one shot color to facilitate wide field mosaics and not having to blow another bundle on filters.
