That is a great looking image. Glad it's not just me. I manually put in coordinates and didnt get what I was expecting. Had to platesolve to see what I got. Was way off from my intended target

Can an admin or mod delete this post please? It’s not my data, I screwed up and accidentally used some test data when I batch processed in PI. I did take images of M33.

Sorry everyone, feel like a fraud
