Description

After over 2 months of bad weather I was surprised with 3 hours of relatively clear skies. I was so surprised that I did not have an object ready to image. I decide to go with an object high in my sky to avoid atmosphere seeing. IC1848 was almost strait up a little to the west so I did a quick "Framing and Mosaic Wizard" in SGP and set up a session with 10 x 300s on Ha, Oiii, Sii at 75/12. Seeing was not great which effected guiding a bit but not to badly. Just as the last image was loading the clouds came rushing in. Still learning PI but I feel things are getting better. Would really like some constructive criticism.
