Description

Using some more of the test data sent to me, I have pleasure posting this image. I needed a lot more data than this, and some of it was not aligned as well as it might have been, which made things more difficult, but I am pleased to have imaged this. The Witch's Head nebula, IC 2118, comprises of only 8 subs of R, G and B each. They were all at 10 minutes long each, and thus the integration time was 4 hours using pier 6. Thanks...
