Description

Now that my rig is completed for deep-sky objects I have finally had time to process in PI. I am very fortunate to be able to use the GNTO which is 13 miles from the house. Since I have invested a huge amount of my money into this hobby I have decided I will only be shooting at the GNTO (Bortles 2) from now on and will not be using my backyard (Bortles 4) as I want to get the most out of images and also share the New Mexico Skies with others all over the internet.

If you would like to process this data yourself I have added it to my processing site. Please feel free to post on the Cloudy Nights link on my site.
