Description

Thought I would have a bit of fun with the colours so I have

Real struggle to do this because of the terrible weather in the UK for the last few weeks plus our tall apple tree blocks the area for the first few hours of the evening and the cone sets behind the house just after midnight

Did the HA just before Xmas over two nights if memory serves and then the Sii and Oiii over a further three over last few nights (during short gaps in clouds)

HSO combination

Only got 18 usable subs for each filter , transparency wasn't good in many so noisy

I have packed my TS Optics imaging star up now to send to Germany to see if they can sort the tense optics to allow for round stars ... as opposed to triangular

I hope it is fixed and back soon !
