To coin a phrase from one of my heroes!
I did it, I got a star!! Well 2+ stars, binary system.
I have honestly spent years with this no-budget Astro-odyssey trying to get one, tonight I did.
For my single digit readers .. this is Acrux, one of my favorite stars, one of the brightest in the southern sky, a complicated binary star system. 11 shots, stacked in Photoshop - one of the first shots to utilise my new stacker tool set I am writing - and 321 light years. It's noisy, fuzzy, flared and a boring shot but gorram it, it's my first star!
Enough rambling! Get to the picture!
