Started from scratch on this one. RAW files went straight into PixInsight for preprocessing/stacking (farewell DSS!), then processing mostly with PixInsight and a few touches with Paint.NET. This was imaged under the darkest skies I've experienced so far, with a somewhat short integration time. Comments/critique appreciated as always.
Total integration: 1 hour 54.5 minutes (114.5 minutes)
111 x 60 seconds ISO800
1 x 180 seconds ISO1600
1 x 32 seconds ISO800
Camera: Canon T3i (stock)
Telescope: Explore Scientific ED80 f/6.0 Apochromatic Refractor (with ES field flattener)
Mount: Orion Sirius EQ-G (unguided)
Bortle Class 3 (Burns Lake Campground in Big Cypress National Preserve near Ochopee, FL)
Stacked with PixInsight, processed with PixInsight, GIMP, and Paint.NET
