Description

Because of the absolutely horrible conditions here in Nashville, I got this data set form my friend Dr. Christian Sasse, Head of iTelecope, and decided to process it myself. I originally tried to use Astropixel, which has a tutorial done by Dr. Sasse, but had no luck. It seems like a good program, but like anything new, there's a learning curve. I ended up using Pixinsight and Photoshop and thought I'd share.
