Description

This is the first LRGB/NB image I took with the 6" Orion Astrograph. Still had the problem with the coma corrector clamping on the filter wheel, but it still turned out really good for a series of 60sec unguided imaging. Didn't get another chance at this target yet since weather down here has been pretty unsteady this year.
