This image of NGC 1931 was captured by Mike Lancaster on the 6th March 2022. It is comprised of 10 x 10 minute exposures taken through a 10" Meade ACF SCT using a 0.5x Mallincam Focal reducer, Astronomik CLS CCD filter and Mallincam Universe camera at 22 dB gain and 2x2 binning. This setup was guided using an SXV Lodestar camera through an OVL off-axis guider and PHD2. The images were stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, and cropped and processed in Nebulosity 4 and Photoshop Elements 2020.  Image © Mike Lancaster.
