Crescent Nebula revisited three years later with better equipment, better skies and some more skills.

 

It's the first presented image after this long period, in part due the COVID in part because the long integration time that I wanted and how short are these summer nights.

 

It was eleven nights with two rigs resulting on 75 hours of integration time. My longest integration time so far.

Fantastic image! That's an insane amount of integration time but it was well worth it.

Wow amazing. 75 hours. I get anxious to start processing after I get 60 minutes of data wink.gif

 

Your patience has paid off!

It was eleven nights (but using a dual rig). I found that way far better than to try to adquiere so many targets as I can... specially it works in summer time with really short nights.
