Description

I was in inspired by Jian Yuan Peng's recent M42, and I always thought that my M42 @92mm could have been better (plus it's still raining). The original stack was really as close to Lucky Imaging as I have done so it was fun to load 500, 30 second subs into blink and watch for rejects. I had forgotten how difficult the processing was.
