230 lights

120 darks

120 bias

120 flats


3h 48m total integration. 


Mismatched exposure length darks and lights, plus dodgy twilight flats replaced with items generated from my trusty lightbox the next day (note to self: if it aint broke, don't fix it), so Entropy stacking used in DSS, as opposed to my usual Kappa-Sigma route. Again, processed in Startools. 




The 135mm takumar lens used seems to suffer from considerable red star halos. Post processing seems to diminish it but ultimately at the expense of sharpness. Price you pay with a nodded dslr, i guess.
