About 8 hours integration time to get these details to finally come out.

151x180s bin 1x1 -20C

 

It's heavily cropped from a 2x drizzle.

Looks very promising with nice detail. You must have had some good seeing.

Most of it was under average seeing, one night under bad seeing. So I was a bit surprised that I could pull out detail.

Great details and clarity - even better with pixel peeping. Share the imaging gear and processing software when you get a chance.

Thanks! Just realized my sig is a bit incomplete and doesn't including my imaging cam. Here are the details:

 

Skywatcher Esprit 120ED Super APO

ZWO ASI 1600mm cool

ZWO 1.25 7nm HA filter

Orion Atlas EQ-G

Sesto Senso 2 electronic focuser

Guidescope: Orion ST-80

 

Capturing: half SGP/ half NINA

 

Processing:

DSS: 151x180s bin 1x1 -20C

Darks: 30x180s

Guidecam: ZWO ASI224mc

 

Photoshop:

Histogram tool to brighten

Smart Sharpen

 

Not too much editing since this capture is still "in progress". I'm still not sure why the image managed to maintain so much detail. This objects skims over my neighbors roof and seeing was not so great.
