Howdy!

 

I'm getting pumped up for galaxy season.  I decided to start on these two friends, as they were the first target I did last year when I got my EQ8-R and 12" f/4 reflector.  I got about 30 hours of data over the last six nights.  Clouds always liked to come in around 1:00AM.  PHD2 crashed a couple nights and NINA stopped imaging.  I haven't figured out what that was about.  This was all calibrated and integrated in Siril, with a couple final touches in GIMP.
