Description

Revisited this target with the Nikon D5300. Think I got more detail from just under 2 hours of exposure than I previously got from 10 hours on the Canon 40D.

10/05/2019:

Added more data to total 6 hours of integration. Tried to bring the noise down a bit and reduce the "halo" it had before.

Best viewed full screen as I did not want to crop this image too much.
