Description

VERY faint object - taken from my Bortle 8 Home location.

I must try this again at a dark site.

I decided as I went along that I needed to increase the length of Ha exposures, hence the different lengths.

Plus a meridian flip in the middle of it all, a bit of a mission to process with the RGB being binned anyway.

Ha 900 x 14

Ha 600 x 2

Ha 1200 x 4 (total Ha 5 Hours 10mins

RGB 9 x 300 binned x 2

Total RGB 1 hour 35mins
