C11 the Bubble Nebula shot on Thursday. I am still trying to figure out what is causing the noise in my images. I lowered the exposure time thinking that it had something to do with it, but no luck.

IC 1396 from last night with only a histo stretch applied. This shot could have been better, however half of the shots were overexposed.

IC 5070 aka the Pelican, shot Thursday morning. This was shot with no cooling, so the sensor had a temp of 88 degrees. Cooling is now fixed so noise should not be an issue.
•25 subs
•25 darks
•25 flats
•150 bias

Finally got the scope out, and decided to give M31 a try. I had numerous problems on this night, and this is only 10 light frames as a result. The DSLR lens fogged up, the focuser started slipping etc, etc,.. This is just a quick processing with only a histo stretch applied.
