    Default M106



    I had an file of light frames from last January that I never got around to processing. One of those projects where I hoped to get a lot more data and never did.

    42 x 30s AT80 on AVX with Fuji X-A1 (iso3200) -- darks only

    I was trying to get a wide field with lots of extra faint fuzzies.
