M27 (Dumbbell Nebula): The Full APS-C Frame

Here's the full APS-C frame of an image I uploaded some time ago with about a 50% crop. Note that this "casual" image used no flats, darks or bias frames. However, I did dither (manually!) between _every_ exposure. _Imager: Pentax K-3II DSLR. _Scope: Meade LXD55 SN6 6-inch f/5 Schmidt-Newtonian OTA on a Vixen GP-DX with SkySensor 2000PC. _Exposure: 16 minutes (32 x 30 seconds) @ ISO 1600. _Guider: Unguided. _Date: Sept 15, 2018. _Location: Huron Church Camp, ~4km south of Bayfield, Ontario, Canada.
