I managed to get a measly hour of RGB to add to the Hα from last week. I’ve always found combining these quite hard due to the alignment, but for this I used Registar which made it a breeze. The Hα is used to replace the Red channel. I may return to get a few extra hours RGB as I’ve lost loads of detail, possible because the SNR of the Green & Blue is too low compared to the Red
