Or at least most of it... This is 6 hrs of data under dark skies. I was pretty aggressive with saturation as can be seen in some of the gradients. For some reason I thought it would be a great idea to forget to put the correct spacers behind the flattener... didn't seem to affect anything too badly. Good to know. Comments welcome.

Terrific image! Great framing. I think the color and saturation are spot on.

Beautiful colors, black background, pinpoint stars, and sharp detail. Great job! You've got me looking at your equipment to see if I should upgrade...
