Some days ago, while on a trip on a Bortle 4 location (SQM 21.63), I decided I wanted to image NGC 7000.
I didn't plan the session before, so I just picked the car up and drove to the top of a nearby hill. The night sky view was amazing grin.gif

 

Some tech stuff:
- StarTools 1.6.400M1 on openSUSE Tumbleweed.
- iOptron SkyGuider Pro
- Nikon D7500 (stock)
- Tamron 150-600 G2 @ 150mm f/5
- ISO 1600
- 77 lights @ 55 seconds
- no darks, flats, biases as it was a cold and unplanned night (and I knew that the next morning I had to wake up very early for a long hike). Next time I will take them, I swear bow.gif

 

All lights were stacked and kept by ASTAP, and the final image post processed using StarTools.
