Description

I am really pleased with how this turned out, and considering there was an 85% illuminated moon out for the vast majority of the imaging session, I am even more pleased. I feel as though this has restored my faith in what is achievable from my back garden, with the many difficulties I face at this location - at least for objects of this nature.

I managed to just about squeeze the object into the frame, which took a bit of fiddling to do so, and took 31 subs at 8 minutes long each through my 3" triplet, using the Ha-OIII duo filter through my modified DSLR. So, the total integration time was 4 hours and 8 minutes. Thanks everyone...
