Description

1st successful image with the pimped 200PDS and ASI1600MM and narrowband. Broadband wasn't delivering (DSLR and filter was better) so switched to nb and pretty pleased. Further learning curve with multi channel processing in Startools (starting with how to stack the channels appropriately, many many hours later lol).
