Description

My first attempt at IC1274.
This was done from my home in Sydney due to being unable to leave thanks to the pandemic...uuurrgghh! 
I had to pull out my trusty old HEQ5 Pro, as I did not want to make any adjustments to my preferred mount (iOptron CEM70) which is setup for the dark sky site.
My backyard has a relatively narrow window of opportunity thanks to houses and trees. I like trees, but no in my backyard!
Thanks to that small window of opportunity to get anything at all, I only did luminance...
I really only managed to get an hour of subs, only after making sure everything was running smoothly - there's nothing worse than changing your rig....

Anyway, I hope you like it...something is better than nothing, especially when it has been a while since getting out to the dark sky site.

Kind regards, Warren
