I've been going back and reprocessing some of my more recent images from the CR2 files (with dark frames) instead of working from TIFF exports.  This is the latest attempt on the Cocoon Nebula taken with an EdgeHD 9.25" at f/7 and a Canon 6D2.  This is from 62 x 360 sec subs at ISO 1600, ~5.1 hours of integration under Bortle 5 skies.  The image may, or may not, be on the dark end of the spectrum, I have difficulty with my monitor appearing to show brighter images than I see when viewing the same images on other monitors, and it's difficult to know where the right brightness level should be.

Thanks Jim.  I've processed and reprocessed this target into something around 23 variants now and used 185 GB along the way.  "They" say the first step is admitting you have a problem, right?  LOL.
