Hello all;
I shot this pair on Aug 3 using my 5" f/6 apo and my 60da capturing only 6 subs of 330 seconds,,,
The image reflects that too few subs were used,, the next time I'm out in he darkness I will add many more subs to bring out the many faint galaxies that are in the background
(I hope) :grin:

one other problem on the night is that there was a faint aurora to the north and sky glow overhead as it had an impact on the over all transparency,,

Anyways I hope you enjoy this stunted version of 7331 & friends.
