That's good Eddy - I can see M42 taking a little shape in there - there's also just a tiny smidgeon of trailing - how long is the exposure? :)

Yea i know, a tiny amount, 10 second exposures, I'm definately much happier with this compared to my first attempt at processing it, shows how much different the processing can make!

I might try 8 seconds or something like that next time, funny thing is theres a calculator stephen sent me and I think it said something like max 13 seconds

Still a good pic though - unfortunately you don't get long on dso's before trailing starts - so short exposure constellations (which are nice and bright) are just suitable to this type of mount - and I've seen folks getting nice planets/moon as well. If you're tracking without motors then you've deffo done a good job there. :)

Nope, I dont know what the elevation was though, maybe around 30-40?

None of the calculations seem to go below 10 seconds anyway, hmm.
