Description

A beautiful, colourful and detailed area of the Southern night sky. I had a number of technical difficulties including sensor and lens dewing problems (dew heater setting incorrect for lens and sensor will require recharging the desiccant when I get home)) and wind that made this a difficult target for me to acquire. I ended up using RGB from one of the 5 nights and luminance from the last night. Unfortunately seeing was not great due to the wind. The other 3 nights' data were unusable, it pains me to say.

R,G and B: 180s x 20 each = 3hrs data
Lum: 60s x 371= 6hr 11min

Total integration: 9hr 11min.
