Description

This is made from data taken on 5 nights from 6 July to the 16 July 2013. The first night was my first light with my Ha filter, and I am really pleased with the result. Adding the extra data over the next few nights made a huge difference by reducing noise and bringing out more detail.

I never thought I would get such results from such a poor site with lots of light pollution.
