Hi everyone!
Finally an acceptable night to image some deeper objects! Sculptor is another target I've imaged before but never completed or finished processing. I was blessed with many good subs after leaving my rig running all night. I took about 60 150sec subs and chose 40 of them to stack. Hope you like it!
