(An advice! Don't buy any Meade equipments, they are generally very poor quality)
The new imaging system is under construction at the moment.

IC 1896 reprocessed



The astronomical darkness hasn't arrived yet, up here 65N, and I don't have any equipments to continue my imaging work. Due to that, I have done some reprocessing of older material of mine. An other reason is to keep up my processing skills.
