Description

Data acquisition was done with a very small 1/3" sensor, which made centering the target a bit tedious. The test shows relatively minimalist setup (with no cooling or guiding) was able to pick up an 11.6 apparent magnitude DSO in a fairly light polluted setting, through a post-processing work-flow mainly aiming noise reduction.
