I can't take my eyes (well, telescope) off the eskimo nebula. I like the faint structures a lot and keep trying to ban them onto a picture.
Next time i will try much shorter exposure times per shot but a lot more photos (something like 1200 x 8 seconds). Maybe then i am satisfied and can let the eskimo go...
2nd version, this time stacked with AutoStakkert after editing every single frame with GIMP. AutoStakkert is great when it comes to small nebulas.
3rd Version based on 2nd, now with a bit postprocessing like colour-normalizing and a bit more saturation.
