Nice image. A lot of walking noise could be removed by dithering, which means that you would have to connect your CG-5 mount to a laptop.

Amdros246 - my Nikon is not Astro Modified, just a stock D5500. I live in a Bortle 6 zone. I had 30 second subs and stepped down my f ratio to f4 to get focus much easier

Arch2 - that is exactly what I plan to do next. Up until a couple weeks ago I was using my star adventure and I guess my polar alignment was bad enough that I didn’t need to dither. I’m already using N.I.N.A so I plan on dithering the next time I image since it’s literally a click away
