Description

First final image that uses my new guiding setup! Wish I had gotten it sooner!

This galaxy was directly above me tonight so I wanted to retry (Again) with less atmosphere getting in the way. However clouds cut me short of my goal to get around 1.5hr - 2hr worth of exposures.

I will likely come back and make more edits to this image in the future.
