Description

I have been attempting NGC 4038 for some time now, but have been having all sorts of issues with both gear and weather for the last 3 months.

With a new OAG, and camera (ZWO ASI174MM) I have finally been able to get the guiding I need for a 2032mm focal length.

Struggled to process this actually, had HA but looked rubbish when I included. I could spend more time on this and improve I guess, but its been so long since I completed a project... I declare enough is enough ... for the moment
