A Bresser Messier AR-102XS ED, f/4.5 refractor, was mounted on a Celestron AVX, EQ, GOTO mount. A QHY5L-ll-M camera was mounted at the prime focus and AstroDMx Capture for Linux, running on a Fedora laptop was used to capture Fits files with matching dark-frames. The FITs files were stacked in Deep Sky Stacker 4.1 running in Wine 3.5 and post processed in the Gimp 2.9.
