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
RGB 15 x 200 binned x 2
Total RGB 1 hour 35mins

Grand total 6 hours 45 mins
Atik428EX, SWED80, HEQ5

Total Ha is now 7 hours 10 mins (no extra RGB added yet)
