This is 13h10m of 300s subs on "The Hidden Galaxy", first go at integrating all the broadband channels. I think I want more on this, and probably add Ha to make the nebulosity pop a bit. But for now, happy!

That's looking good Rob, it looks like there are lots of star forming regions. I just looked it up to see why it is called the 'Hidden Galaxy' and it seems that it's location behind dusty areas near the galactic equator makes it difficult to observe.

Yep that's it! I'm finding it very appealing at the moment. A nice challenging target to get my teeth into...
