This is the last image of the season.
The season one of the worst i have endured. Aside from the weather i was blessed with many misfortunes. The camera is now on its way for service.

The image is cropped substantially to remove the dew stained induced defects.
Total time of exposures are around 30 hours. The time distribution is uneven and substantially skew to blue. The green and red channel is not perfectly calibrated due to the ever changing dew stain.

Hopefully i will sort everything out at the beginning of next season.

Till then, clear sky!
