Capturing,guiding,dithering with MaximDL.
Unfortunately, i am imaging from a light polluted city.
Also, the moon was a real problem through the SII capturing
as it was almost full and close to Cassiopeia.
I would welcome any comments and critisism on the processing
as i am new to the procedure, and i know that this image can
Thanks in advance!

Peter, you really made a difference there,
i like it a lot better.
I will try to further process it using some PI's tools.
