Never satisfied but still learning. Orion and Running Man. I really want to achieve a smoother result but I think I just need much more time to gather those photons or to use a longer FL scope with larger aperture to do a composite or maybe both. When I zoom in I just see too many gaps. This image comprises of sets of 15 of each exposure level of 5 sec, 10 sec, 30 sec, 60 sec, 120 sec, and 240 sec shots. So 90 shots and about 2 hrs data collection time. The varied exposures aids with the HDR and have a non blown out core with a defined trapezium.
