Here is my haul from today's session.  Seeing was mediocre due to the heat, but the sky was very clear.

Thanks to Great Attractor for Stackistry and imppg.  Together with AstroDMX Capture, these round out all of the software that I need for capturing and processing images completely within Linux. I have not performed any post-processing, just leaving this as-is from imppg, mainly on account of poor focus on the left part of the image.  This is due in part to my current setup, and I'm needing an M42x0.75 female to M28.5x0.6 male adapter so i can directly attach my camera to my scope without relying upon the horrid 1.25" tube nonsense.

 

Lunt LS50, double-stacked, QHY5III178 with a small barlow threaded to the front so it fills out most of the sensor.

I was observing visually with the same equipment at the same time and your picture depicts it well!
