Hello! I took these pictures on the 30th of October. I'm not very experienced with the image processing side of astrophotography. So, I was wondering if there is someone out there that would like to take a crack at producing an image from my data. I have all the lights, darks, biases, and flats in separate folders.

 

Camera: Canon 70D

Lens: Canon EF-S 55-250 IS ii

F-stop: f/11

ISO: 1600

Sub length: 15 seconds

Tracker: Sky watcher star adventurer

 

Here is a zip file with all the frame folders on Google Drive (3.3 GB): Link

 

Here is an album on CN with one of my processing attempts: Link

 

I can't wait to see what you will produce! Make sure to respond to this post with your pictures!

It was captured on a Canon 70D with the kit 55-250mm lens at f/11 fully zoomed in to 250mm. 15 second exposures at ISO 1600.

This is the best I could do.  Your subs were too short I think, you needed longer exposures to capture the dust lanes clearly.  There were also some strange artifacts like streaks in your calibration frames (not sure which ones).  I'm far from any expert in processing, but learning my way through Pixinsight.
