Description

The cloudy weather has put a constraint on my astrophotography. However, I was able to get a few clear nights late in January and early February to acquire this image. Here I used my SFFR.8-80T reducer to get both these DSOs in one frame. This is my first acquisition and process of 2021 and I hope the rest of the year brings us better weather. While I entered only one night per filter, this was actually taken across five sessions: Jan 27/28, Feb 1/2, Feb 2/3, Feb 9/10, and Feb 10/11.
