Description

After shooting this galaxy for years this is definitely me best effort yet. About a year ago I upgraded everything basically from a 80mm triplet, iEQ30 mount and ASI 183 mono cam to a 127 triplet, CEM 120 mount and ASI 2600 mono cam. It's taken the most part of a year to get past all the learning curves but I'm about to get a handle on things finally. 
L    64x240 4.2hrs
R    21x360 2.1hrs
G    21x360 2.1hrs
B    21x360 2.1hrs
HA 68x300 4.2hrs
Total 14.7 hrs integration, no stars removed in the RGB or LUM channels but stars were removed to create masks in each channel which seemed to work best/
