Description

This would be probably my longest I sat on a non-mosaic project. After battling the condensation on my 268, I reached out to QHY and they sent me a replacement. It has held pretty well on several nights where the whole rig appear it was rained upon. 

I had subs from the old and new cams that I had to run through stacking, plus dust motes that moved in the initial set of subs. Using selective rejection I was able to recover them all. 

With this setup, I feel like I am not seeing any noticeable difference with more data yet (plus I'm getting impatient ), so I processed what I had. 

Hope you like this result! Clear skies!
