Description

I still am not good at taking flats. I have the pegasus flat master, but still can never seem to remove them fully. Without the flats there were more dust bunnies, so I was wondering if it is just something we are all dealing with, or if I am just doing something wrong.

And I have no idea how the photometric color calibration in PI cant plate solve my image like it used to. None from Big Bend were PCC'd this one either.
