This is Markarian's Chain shot from my back garden over three nights in late March. Probably the deepest single image I've taken in terms of integration time...which leaves me feeling my processing is not quite doing the data justice...maybe I'll come back to it.
In any case, this is an incredible part of space; looking away from our galaxy reveals countless others!
The crazy number of Lum subs took a whole day for APP to chug through and so I've resolved to lower the gain from unity going forwards to get more manageable sub lengths than 15 seconds!
L: 1050 (!) x 15s R: 92 x 60s G: 165 x 30s B 165 x 30s....total integration time 8.2 hours.
Captured using APT, stacked in APP and processed in Pixinsight.
Thanks for looking!

This is one of the objects which data I’m going through which I captured during the last couple of months.
This is an image of M104 which I captured across a few nights starting end of March and a couple of nights in April.
This was imaged at 2032mm, the 8” SCT native focal length, 300s, 600s and 900s ISO800 subs.
This didn’t come out as well as I hoped it would, no details in the edge shadow, but during those nights I was fighting slight haze… this is an object which I’ll have to image again in the future.
3 objects left to process.
