Southern California weather has been on tear this fall. Santa Ana winds, rain, high humidity and just plain clouds has been a nuisance. Telescope time has been limited so I consider this to be a work in progress. There is only 10.7 hours in this image and I am hoping to get at least another 15 hours. This is an LRGB stack
