Description

Short integration time around 11 mins. 13 frames, 45 sec. @iso1600. My RA motor drive battery died on me right at the beginning of the imaging session, so the other 40+ frames I acquired had to be discarded because of trailing :( At least my camera was set to RAW this time, not jpeg...

Quite a hard target to find via star-hopping...when I returned to the city to add more integration time, it was no longer visible given the settings I needed to use in a Bortle 3 sky. I definitely plan to add to this image when I return to the woods...

Saturation boost.

80x45" for a total of 1 hour exposure time on this attempt. These frames were from my backyard, iso800 because of the light pollution.
