Nikon d5100 fullspectrum, cooled. Idas-lps-d1. ISO 400. SW 80 ed whit 0.8x reducer. 30x10min. Prosessing pixinsight+PS CC. I got the arcsinh strech and deconvolution to work whit this image. Thanks for all the help! Happy whit the result. This is far too small target for my scope so cant expect too much. C&C welcome as allways.

I'd say that's very good for your focal length and aperture. Nice work.
