We had a clear streak of 5 clear nights in a row and I was able to sneak to local dark site one night. Below is stack of 62 * 180s images on star adventurer with 35 art@f4. D5300a with idas V4 filter.

 

Stars were removed using starnet and re-added in the end.

Incredible nebular detail. In the full-res Astrobin image I notice a lot of star-sized black holes in the nebulae, many actually forming trails. Is that some kind of registration or stacking problem? Could that have been caused by a particular order of operations with regard to Starnet++?

Thanks Alen. I get radial stars on the corners be it d5300a or Z6a. I had sent it to sigma for servicing but that hasn't been rectified.

Black holes in the nebula is artifact and processing issue with starnet. It wasn't able to fully clear up the stars.

Thanks for sharing this - truly a superior image.  The capability of the Nikon D5300/D5500 continues to impress, and kudos to your processing ability - I was surprised at how much nebulosity you brought out with a relatively modest amount of total integrations time.  And the colour balance is spot on!  

 

Clear skies!

Craig.
