Description

I know it’s the Veil but I see a dragon breathing smoke or perhaps even a side view of Skeletor’s Havok Staff. This is a crop from a much larger Cygnus loop capture. Hope that you enjoy it.

This version has 11 hours of data gathered over 3 nights. Processed in PI with cropping and slight adjustments on iPhone. Making it my longest integration to date.

This is my first end to end using the Redcat51 / ASI AirPro / GEM45EC / ASI 6200MC setup. Very light weight setup can move the whole thing at once with counter weights.
