Description

This is one of the Telescope Live Pro Datasets from Nik Szymanek to show how to do a tutorial. Not sure how he did it, but I did the mosaic part in APP because mosiacs there are easy mode. I thing this one would really be awesome to go after with a lot more integration time and I may just have to do that some time. It is a little mroe noisy than I intended, but that is due to me stretching it fairly hard so you can see all the faint fuzzies, besides, the initial stack had the centers of the bright galaxies blown anyway, so may as well blend the blow!
