Description

A single, guided 30 minutes exposure at ISO-640, test photo taken just before light. I had decided to collect some more images, but the weather turned so I'm currently left with only the single (noisy) image, without flat calibrations.

I attempted to clean it up a bit, difficult as always without taking it too far. Tried a partial arcsinh stretch followed by regular histogram stretch in order to not get the red/blue edges around stars like the previous few. I also think that I had some focus/collimation issues this session, so should be able to do better in theory.

Overall, it came mediocre, particularly when not looked at full size, as it's still very noisy etc
