Description

First light with my Astrodon filterset.

It's not the prettiest M45, this was just a test session for the new filters, but I like it despite all issues with the data :)

I also caught 2 asteroids! Rev B. is a small animation that shows their movement

* Only 1.1h of subs were used in the original version, I did not use any subs with issues.
* Rev. C/D uses all data from the night and better DBE. I used a different color balance and applied luminance noise reduction.
