This took a month to figure out how to process but I think it's finally at an acceptable state. I did 7 second videos spaced 20 seconds apart with my Quark at 1000mm focal length. Frames were batch stacked w/AutoStakkert, aligned/processed in ImPPG, colorized in Lightroom.

One thing I noticed is the sun appears to rotate clockwise. Does anyone notice that?

That would be slight field rotation caused by imperfect polar alignment of the mount.
