Description

Weather has been rough over the last month or so. I've been using M13 as my test subject as I transition back to SGP. I'm much happier with the guiding through PHD2 and with the upcoming observatory module, I think it'll be worth the wait.

Updated to include RGB. I'm running into a unique problem that I think might be RBI... I seem to get these 'ghost' filter wheels on my images now. This was processed as best as I could utilizing PI for picture integration and PS for stretching... for some reason I'm more comfortable doing an easy stretch in PS.

It definitely has it's flaws... but not a bad test. Also, new filters... lens flares
