In my quest to always be improving, I present this widefield view for your consideration/criticism.

 

Mount: Star Adventurer

Camera: Canon T5i (Ha modded)

Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8

Filter: none

Frames: 50x180 sec lights at ISO 1600 and f/6.3; dark/flat/bias frames

Location: Bortle 4.5-ish in New Hampshire

 

Processing: Stacked in APP, stretched and removed gradient in APP, removed stars in Starnet++, final touches in Gimp (value propagate x2 on star image, saturation/curves/brightness/contrast)
