    Very Nice! Really tight stars (compared to my C8) and colors. We have similar gear and I've been trying to get a good rendered image of this for almost 3 months - but most is/was from my bortle 9 backyard - and my stars are pretty bad towards the edges. Here's the "most effort" version I have today, please let me know what you think.

    Thank You


    Thanks! That's just a straight 20min EAA capture with Sharpcap. No post processing at all. I just use an Alt-Az mount so the sub exposures are only 6s. I find that I get better results in heavy light pollution with shorter exposures.


    I think yours is great. Much brighter and more visible features.
