Waning Moon, 21st August 2019

Three nights on the bounce! But this one was a bit of an adventure. What was foreast as a few of hours of clear sky after the Moon rose stopped about two minutes after I kicked off the run to collect my subs at 1:15am and I ended up with about thirty that were ok and many more that were varying shades of dark. I decided to hang around for a while on the off-chance I might get another go and just before 2am clear sky reappeared, allowing me to complete another run. In the end I had 135 passable subs and threw away 65 without even considering processing them.

1/500th subs at ISO800, preprocessed with PIPP, stacked in AS!3, wavelets in Registax 6 and finished off with PS.
