Didnt really have the energy to image last night after a non stop day at work. So decided to do something quick and easy, going with Omega Centauri again.

Compare this image to the Omega Centauri image I took around 20 days ago and you can really see how much better this one came out. I made sure to only stack the exposures with the roundest stars so the final stacked image looked 10x better then the one from the other day. Also in this one there are way more stars showing up, making this cluster look even better and bigger!
