Description

I had trouble getting subs longer than 10s and could not get the guide scope calibrated, so I ended up taking 246 10s shots before my dslr battery died. I tried live stacking for about 5 minutes before I started and was excited by how much detail was coming out with each frame. I'll definitely come back to this target in the future, hopefully with some upgraded gear.
