First Stacking of DSO from Crest Astro-Shack
I guess I can call this the first "official" deep sky image from the new observatory since I did stack these with a dark filed. Seven shots at ISO 1000, f/6.3 with Canon 60Da, CLS filter, Meade LX200 classic 12", StarShoot Autoguider on piggyback Orion 80ED Apo, and 5 minute exposures.
Stacked with DeepSky Stacker and Gimp processing.
Nothing special, I can complain about a lot of things in this image, but I have a lot to re-learn about this since I've been away for a couple years and forgot a lot!
