Description

This was taken using OSC and then processed with channels split out and recombined.  I still feel like there's quite a bit of control I've given up using a OSC + LExtreme filter combo vs my older 1600MM + Filter Wheel setup, but I'm getting a little more comfortable with it.  Unfortunately I didn't get a full night of data either of the two nights I dedicated to this target since on the first night Voyager started throwing OutOfMemory exceptions at about 3am because apparently leaving the web interface up pulling preview JPEGs causes some sort of memory leak (the web dashboard is still in beta) and on the second night it inexplicably looped waiting to meridian flip for 2 hours incorrectly believing that the target was in the 3 minute zone after the meridian I had set it up to wait before flipping.  It finally decided to flip about 3:30am.  Hopefully with a few more runs I can iron out all the quirks in my Voyager setup.

I wasn't as careful as I'd have liked in my framing because the rotation was somewhat different than I had originally intended meaning I only got part of the open cluster on the edge of the image.  I also haven't decided which orientation I like best for the image, I think I may go 90 degrees clockwise.
