Now up to 11 hours of 600 subs, but a lot then were when the moon was quite near the target, it might have been a waste as the extra was very noisy.

That's looking lovely and smooth.

I think that as ones's imaging improves, the impact of the Moon increases.  A year ago I felt that I could almost ignore the Moon when imaging in Ha.  Recently, I have become more fussy.  I'm not sure that I am pleased, or not.

Thank you.

I think it depends on the target and how desperate you are to image something.😃

Thanks a lot.

I was trying not to over denoise it.
