Description

I have uploaded a new revision, please tell me which one is better: the original or the new revision

Sadly my camera is unmoded so I can only get the central region. But I think it is pretty OK (not great but OK) for an unguided mount and unmoded camera.

UPDATE: The latest version has the same raw data as the previous version, but it's processed with STARTOOL, an amazing processing software. I have just began to learn it, but you can do magic to your photos.
