Avalon-Instruments is glad to announce the AAPODx2 for Kayron Mercieca and his M-uno with this amazing NGC7789 Caroline's Rose Cluster in LRGB

 Caroline Rose Cluster M Uno aapodx2

All imaging took place at my remote observatory at e-EyE, Spain.

This image comprises 2 hours and 5 minutes of exposures in 250 exposures in total, each 30 seconds long. To be precise:

L = 100 x 30s
R = 50 x 30s
G = 50 x 30s
B = 50 x 30s

This image exploits short exposures in order to prevent over-saturation of stars and in order to avoid problems with the Moon.
