Description

First image with the FRA400 and my first foray into widefield AP.

Unfortunately light pollution and clouds meant jettisoning 3 hours of subs and only keeping 48 minutes worth, so there was alot of noise and not much signal to work with. Many thanks to Ron Brecher (AstroDoc) for showing me how to best process such limited OSC data.
