Another M20. Much more than the 23-minute integration by Gvs (I'm curious about that and somewhat envious). This image is composed of approximately 64 sub-frames, 5 minutes each, LRGB. Pre-processed and processed with PixInsight.

 

I'm thinking I will obtain another 20 to 30 sub-frames to perhaps enhance this image.

No additional sub-frames but re-did post-processing in PixInsight: Re-did histogram transformation and in LRGB combination with PixInsight I increased color saturation using a saturation "Transfer Factor" of 0.40.
