AR 1520 Up Close and Personal
This is my best pic of AR 1520 yet; it looks almost like a shield volcano. This was a stack of about 400 images. Captured in Sharpcap, stacked in Registax 6, and processed in Corel. Tracking of the PST was manual, using the slow motions on my modified equatorial mount (see an earlier post for details). Cam was Microsoft Lifecam. Notice how much this area has changed even over a few days of imaging.
