Running Chicken Nebula from my backyard. I still couldn't figure out how to fix the potential tilt problem(possibly due to the flattener) that causes the elongated stars on left. I post-processed them in Startools so they look somewhat round but bigger. This is taken from unmodified fuji xt1 so it's no comparison to the ones with astro camera, but I am happy with the result achieved with my equipment.
