Star cluster Messier 44

Tonight was the first time since mid of November with acceptable conditions for astropohotography… I don’t like this weather… However, this night it was good – at least until about 3am. For stacking I again used DeepSkyStacker 3.3.2 with Kappa-Sigma Clipping. Btw: Happy Easter! 🙂 Last updated: March 25, 2016 at 9:41 am
