Description

My third project using remote telescopes. I decided to try it because in the last 5 years it has been impossible for me to use my telescope for work and personal commitments (I also have dozens of subjects still to be processed).

My plan is to use the plan-40 payed plan with subjects that are impossible to acquire with my setup and from my location (south Italy), with a minimum of imaging time (max 1 h for each subject, mainly I use Moon discount offered by Itelescope imaging with narrowband filters).

This is the proccessing of rejects images affected by strong gradients due to thin clouds.

Hubble Palette composition of 4 images for each filter from telescope T12 (Australia).
