I started out thinking this would be an H-alpha narrowband project because of the strong moonlight, but the starfield came through just fine.  The picture is from a ASI183MM-Pro and a Stellarvue 70mm at  f4.8.  3hour of H-alpha at 4 min. subs at 160 gain, -30C, combined with 35 RGB at 30 seconds each, also at 160 gain,-30C.  This used a synthetic luminance comprised of all the filter results.  The H-alpha was used as about a 30% blend with the LRGB picture.  Wish I had an OIII filter to catch the blue detail next to the Wizard.

 

I remember how hard it was to deal with stars in this area with a DSLR.  Clicking on the picture will make it larger.

Looks great. What did you use to process? Stars look good.
