I took these images back in January and stacked them using Images Plus.  I'm just getting a little more familiar with PixInsight so I reprocessed the stacked data then tweaked it in PhotoShop.  I do have elongated stars due to a misaligned Hyperstar.  I fixed this later - but it doesn't help this data.

Nice work! I like to do this all the time with old data. Especially stuff from the previous year and earlier. It really shows how much you've improved with your processing to do that exercise. Plus, it makes all your old images...new again.
