Description

This is "first light" (really "first finished image") for a new camera setup that I got back in March. The usual delays in getting things dialed in were coupled with terrible Spring imaging weather, but so far the camera, filter wheel and filters have performed very well with no issues. This is my first time with SHO and it was fun to process the data, even though my processing is a bit rusty!
