Description

22 total hours in a bortle 4.

Two different sets of data (180"@0 gain) and (90"@100 gain). The 0 gain shots did not come out well.. after 10 hours I decided to start over with the 100 gain setting. In the end, I combined the two.

Also used the L-Extreme to extract 2 hours of Ha, blended with the red channel 50/50.
