I can't remember why I thought that this would be a good target for 530 mm FL as clearly it wasn't. Anyhoo, the data was collected so it had to be processed also.

 

My stars are a little wonky and I think my scope might suffer from a slight chromatic aberration. Additionally somewhere there's a minor tilt as the stars are elongated at the upper left corner. The tilt got better when I removed the CAA and I can further remove most of it during the post-process but I'm thinking the scope might need some TLC from Takahashi when the next galaxy season starts again. C&C appreciated as usually.

Love the "zoomed out" view myself.  Great colors, 7331 just looks like it's floating out there...  I'm glad you processed it!

I'd like to see it better, could you upload a little jpeg here? When I click on your image thumbnail I get an empty page that says

This is one of my favorites

Are you using Chrome on Android? This same thing happens to me with Astrobin links. Long pressing on the thumbnail and opening the link in a new tab works for be.

I'm using Chrome also with no issues. Maybe someone more sophisticated can help you as I don't think there's nothing wrong with the link.
