my svq100 was sending me nasty emails complaining about the dust it was collecting, so i thought i'd better give it something to do.. this is "first light" for the 1600 and the Astronomik filters, and a resurrection of the AVX

didn't know i'd picked the dimmest LBN there was.. dim dusty's are a "processing challenge", at least for me :)
