Description

I kept thinking if I should shoot orion this year with my RC6 and QHY163M, reason why I decided to stack my old data, from 2017 and 2018 to see if the result is good enough to consider this target done and finished.

I really like how it came out, the orietation of the camera was both at 90 and 0 degrees, reason why I got 8 spikes instead of 4. I love the 8 spikes

Is it worth doing it again, maybe shoot some Ha?
