I was able to grab 6+ hours of subs the other night of this little known (To me at least :) ) object in Orion. I had shot a widefield of IC443 the night before and noticed it in the frame so I thought I'd go a little closer with the ED80 and AT reducer. Let me know what ya think.

Specs:

80 X 300 sec @ ISO 800
Modded 40D
Astronomiks CLS filter
Custom ED80
Starshoot Autoguider and Borg 76ED
Atlas EQ6
Captured w MaximDl V5
Calibrated in ImagesPlus V3
Stacked in Registar
Final processing in PSCS2

Very nice as usual. The larger image is worth the look. There were what looked like hot pixels in that one, though. Do you take darks/flats/bias etc?

Very very nice indeed. Focus/Tracking is spot on and the ED80/AT Reducer looks to be a combination made in heaven.

I think there may be a little more in it yet, have you played with PixInsight. Very powerful tools for making the most of this sort of image.
