An interesting one!

By "difficult" you must mean the dim outer ring. How much more than 4hrs do you need?

Hi Chris!

Two issues I meant according „difficult“ - to kerp details in the center of the galaxy and the fine big halo around it.

In my case 4hrs have been enough, but just because of those exceptional circumstances, so low humidity causing perfect transparency, as written SQM up to 21.5.

Under normal conditions you would need 6-8 hrs I guess.

best regards,
