Description

IC 63 is a beautiful emission nebula found in Cassiopeiae. Seeing 4/10

Taken with my new Hyperstar system. Still trying to get my stars round! Collimation problem!

Description: I know this image wasn't good enough to bother redoing. The stars are horrible (when I first got the Hyperstar system, and didn't have the collimation correct). And I definitely needed a lot more integration time on it. But I figured it was a good opportunity to practice my processing chops! I think it looks better. Definitely less noise. Mike
