Please critique! Don't hold back!

 

The skies cleared for a few hours last night, so I was able to collect some photons.

The Double Cluster in Perseus, The Heart and Soul Nebulae, and Comet C/2017 T2 (PANSTARRS); 1/16/2020, ~10:10PM EST.

Not bad considering that I forgot to add a counterweight and balance everything; I only had to throw out 2 shots due to trailing, and had to throw out another 7 due to tree limbs coming into view.

Sony A6300, Rokinon 135mm f/2 @ f/4, Orion SkyView Pro mount, Shoot Intervalometer
14 lights totaling 13 minutes of exposure @~ISO 1000 (one 30 sec. shot at ISO 1600, one 30 sec. shot at ISO 1250, and the remaining 12 shots at 60 sec. and ISO 1000)
14 darks, 4 flats

Stacked/aligned in Starry Sky Stacker, adjustments in Luminar 3.1.3

 

Full size on Astrobin.
