2018-09-07 Laguna (M8) try#2

This last september's nights are giving better images than previous years.
With only 30s subs but much better stars since no wind this time.
(30s only, limited by bad PA on my EQ after /me forgot the tablet hosting my PA helper)

So for the first time I combined images from 2 separate sessions, framing being (purposedly) similar.

Gear: Olympus E-PL6 with Skywatcher 130PDS 632mm/4.86 and SWCC at f/4.55
Capture: blend of
* [2017-05-24] 14x30s 3200i on Celestron Nexstar SLT tracking Alt-Az (23 darks)
* [2018-09-01] 17x40s 1600i on Omegon EQ-300 tracking RA (15 darks)
* [2018-09-07] 12x30s 3200i on Omegon EQ-300 tracking RA (13 darks)
for a total of ~24min.
Site: deep country 26km from Limoges, France
Sky: very good (bortle class 3) with a bit of LP low on horizon
Processing: Regim 3.4, Fotoxx 12.01+
