Tough little target. Hour and 40 min. so far. Will get more down the road. From a light polluted area.

Due to the blue nature of this image I'm wondering if you used the ES 127CF?

No. Actually I used a 10" SCT. This is the 2nd process I did on it because the first seemed to be a bit too green. So I reprocessed it and got this. This turned out dimmer than my first process.

Very nice! I'm collecting photons from M97 right now using my 10" f/6.3 LX200. The transparency is awful, but we'll see how it turns out,

 

Nicely done!

Thanks John. I think my processing will go up a notch or two when i decide to purchase one of the heavy hitters like Nebulosity or PI.
