I put a solid 3 hours of data into this galaxy under clear, dark skies on Friday night. Spent the night alone in the woods, fell asleep in my car as the camera continued to take 3.5 minute subs well into the daylight. I woke up at 6am very disoriented. lol. I am very happy with the way this has turned out! On to the next object!
