It was the first time using two setup including autoguiding in parallel. (RA only)
setup one capture the IC1396 via SWN1507 including autoguiding in RA & Dec.
And setup 2 capture same field with SAMYang 135mm with SA-mount and using RA-autoguiding with small finder and ASI 120MM
I could make 63x 90sec lights of same area around IC1396.

As I already said, it was a night with perfect conditions.

Processed in PI used 3x3 dizzle stacking for maximum resolution and resized to original size.
Additional processing in LR to get out more color in the IC1396 area.
