Description

Hello everyone!

Here is an image I captured from Sierra Remote Observatory in March/April using a 16" RCOS and SBIG-6303AOX. It comprises about 66hrs of exposure time, all 20min subs. We experienced many gear issues in the earlier parts of the capture, so it took a ton of time to get good data on this, but I'm glad I was patient.
