IC1396

Last Nights imaging run, I think I found the sweet spot for the equipment I am using, This is my first go at guiding over 5 min. I did 8 minute subs. I know the argument between shooting long subs or short subs. If you loose a short sub, not a lot of investment in time lost, and as we know tossing a long sub is a big loss of time. I see how it plays out, as I like the smoothness of the files produced with longer subs.
