Description

>>>>>>> This is a crop, please click here to see the full field! <<<<<<<<

12 x 600s L and 3 x 600s each for RGB. Seeing was quite good for my site, around FWHM 2.4
Need to make new flatfields, these are not optimal. Also needsmore RGB and L frames to reduce the noise, maybe tonight...

Latest version with 46 x 600s L and 12 x 600s each RGB and unsharp mask.

Next I will try my hand at Deconvolution.
