Making the most of a rare period of clear nights in the UK! A bit low in the sky putting it in amongst the worst area of light pollution for me forcing a little harsher processing than is my preference. Total of 2 1/2 hours exposure with an hour of L and 1/2 an hour each of LRGB. Atik 383L camera and a Takahashi FSQ85 scope guided using an off axis guider. Processed in PixInsight

Very nice on a difficult target with less than ideal conditions. Nice colors too. I hope to get a whole clear night to park my scope on M33 and soak up light for 6 or 7 hours soon. You have much more detail than I got on my first try. I may have gotten an hour on it that night. Actually I went back and looked and I only had 30 min. I'll put in a link to it, I don't want to post a pic on your thread

Yeah its a surprisingly tricky little blighter that really needs an hour in each of RGB and a couple of hours in L. a couple of hours of Ha would help too but that makes it a bit of a marathon.

How do you like your CGEM by the way?
