I haven't had any clear weather for a month.  Being new to the hobby, it felt like I had to re-learn some of the basic things!

 

I ended up with 100 subs, 4 minutes each, for 6:40 of integration time.  I would have had more, but my automated meridian flip was not successful at 4 am.  I was sound asleep.

 

Processed in Photoshop.  I tried a new to me technique for preserving/boosting star color.  I may have overdone it a bit.

 

I also tried out Topaz DeNoise, and I am really impressed with that.  There is a 30 day free trial.
