Hello!

 

I recently got a ZWO ASI178MM to use as a new guide scope camera.  It works superbly for that purpose.  However, it came with a fish eye lens.  Tonight wasn't a good, full, clear night to set up my honking EQ8-R Pro and 12" Newtonian, so, instead, I tried the camera with its adorable little lens.  I took 30 second exposures for maybe 4 or 5 hours.  I integrated them all to create a kind of "flat" to reduce some light pollution, and divided it out of each frame.  I used Siril for these tasks, and it has a really nice feature where it can export a sequence to a video file.  Here's my result:
