Description

Moon was 75%, just messing around with acquisition software, but it was a steady night, so had to try something, think this is OK. Globulars work OK in moonlight/light pollution.

Nothing does star color like RGB imaging and PixInsight.

Got more data on a better night, did better processing. Even more data awaits processing from a 3rd night, need to put the best of it together, use what I've learned about processing this.

Leaving the old one up for comparison,
