Description

Processed some old data from October 2010.

This was only meant to be a test shot for framing and to see how this object was suited for the Takahashi Epsilon 180ED/SBIG STL11000 setup. I never got around to adding more data and thus this image is only made from 6x300sec L (1x1 bin) and 4x300sec RGB (2x2bin) for a total of only 1h 30m.
