Description

Another one in the crop of early to mid April clear skies here in the UK (two to go !)

Markarian's Chain in LRGB - well most of it - i could have got the final galaxy i suppose if i had rotated the camera so room for improvement - I will include the full field that i got as a revision

My Imaging star continues to perform well from a star roundness point of view following its return from Germany so that good

This is certainly may best version of this so far although is am still struggling with the RGB calibration

The background was quite noisy so perhaps have over done the processing to get it smooth

Lume 295 x 30

RGB 240 x 30 each

So just over eight hours in total
