Comments  
This wider field shot has captured the pair with reasonable detail but some guiding errors mean that
some heavy processing was needed to get a reasonable result. The shots were stacked using Astroart. Guided using MX5C on Celestron 80mm using a 3 x teleconverter to give f15 and focal length of 1200mm. Guide exposure of 2 seconds.
