Perseverence required

For this subject I had to abandon two sessions when they were afflicted by continual patches of thin cloud passing by and ruining any chances of a decent set of subs. The third attempt proved more productive though the transparency could have been better. This is another of the brighter galaxies in Pegasus. It is the barred-spiral NGC 7479 and is notable for its sinuous arms though I haven't been very successful at capturing them as well as I had hoped. Perhaps another one for a better sky. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 15 x 10 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
