I MIGHT add a bit more data to get the dust more visible.  I will also probably reprocess this a bit as the stars are a bit messed up.

 

Iexos 100 mount, AT60ED, Saturn Player One, Antila Triband, 15 second subs.  4.6 hours total from Bortle 8/9.

 

Processed with Siril, Astrosharp, and Affinity 2 with James Ristson's macros, NoiseX and Topaz Denoise.

That looks like a classical work of art. You should print that on metal as large as possible to get the full impact if your image. Well done!

Yeah, I've been imaging it for about 3 weeks.

too low for me Rod, I have roofs (bad seeing) and light dome to deal with. Probably another month or so.

That is real nice image! I have about two hours on mine (30 sec subs) and I don't have quite as much detail. my FOV is smaller too. I keep trying to mess with it to brighten it up a bit. After seeing yours, I may stop and try to get more time/detail instead. Nice!
