This is another of my very short exposure shoots from my very light polluted front yard. I found this old data and decided to try to process it. This is Orion in 7 minutes. Yep 14-30 second exposures. No flats, darks or bias either. Had to do some cleanup of some very bad internal reflections. Overall I'm pleased for such a bad stack.
