Description

Last night I played with a new Tribahtinov mask collimating my old C8. Works pretty nicely.

Had some time so I just sat on M46 awhile until it was getting close to trees.

I did my post-processing with Affinity Photo instead of Photoshop. Haven't learned how to do everything like I have been doing in PS for 10+ years but I think it has promise as a valid alternative to PS.
