I've been wanting to capture IFN ever since I started AP, and now I finally managed to do that... Barely.

 

Please don't zoom in into this image, I had to stretch it well beyond what is considered acceptable to reveal the faint. I would've exposed for 20+ hours but it's almost summer so the nights are short and the moon is rising as well. 

 

Image details: 

Orion ED80 + 0.8 Reducer

Nikon D3300

EQ6

~80x5 min subs

Stacked in APP, processed in PS

 

Please let me know what you think! Have I gone too far in your opinion, or is it worth it because of what it has revealed? 

 

Cheers, 

Julian
