Description

Guiding sucked on this first. I was getting 4" RMS error. Not sure why, last time I was below 2".

This is a nice galaxy group. M 96 is 30 million light-years aways.

I think I need to do two more panels. I messes up my framing and missed M95, And it might be worthwhile to add a panel towards the zenith. There's another batch of galaxies right within one additional field-of-vow of my setup.

Edit: I added a panel with M96 - albeit only 30mins. Guiding improved a lot today. I had reduce aggressiveness in PHD2 a lot. That helped. It seemed I had oscillations due to overcorrections.
