Gallery - HD 14771 and Galactic Friends was created by Lead_weight

Despite a few crazy issues with 2.9.8 on the Mac, I managed to produce a neat image. I centered the star HD14771 to place NGC 891 in the lower right and a galaxy cluster in the upper left. After two nights of imaging, I had around 13 hours. I placed it all together today. Turns out that the galaxy cluster was only a few of the total galaxies in this image. In all, there are 79.

Really nice field. 13h is for luminance? What is the ratio for RGB?
