Had really hoped to get 2-3 hours in, but equipment and clouds decided to play a role and thwart me. Thus, noise is way higher than I'd like. Also temps of 90F with an uncooled DSLR didn't help.

Updated 8/2/2016 thanks to fellow astrobin member cdavid and his excellent post processing skills. Big shoutout to him!!!
