so, learned some things - getting better (i think) at the non-DSO data

 

at the risk of controversy - i replaced the 7 stacked original shots with 30% of the best 150 taken from a Canon TSi on an Orion 120mm f/8.3 (same single 10 second exposure background)

below is a Pixinsight stack of all of the AT72ED data with the Canon T3i - strangely less red, but i think the detail is much better from the first attempt
