Here is my latest image. I probably need a lot more integration time but it's a start.

Andy,

Looks really nice. I like the rotated orientation - the "ghosties" look upright.

Nice Andy ... i think some deconvolution help to gain better sharp result.

 

All the best,

Leo

Thanks Leo.

I am actually planning to reprocess it altogether. The seeing was bad so, yes deconvolution is in order to sharpen it.

Great start to this! That 6"rc is a gem. Time to talk to the CFO about getting one.

Since I image at the same location as Andy, I'd say it is a Bortle class 3 site.
