Description

this was my first shot at a proper multi-frame stacking of DSO imaging using an inexpensive mirrorless camera and telescope as well as utilizing light frames and dark frames on DSS (no bias or flats, single layer editing of the output) also, apologies for the noise as i used short exposures due to poor tracking and alignment which was extremely difficult to do in a tight backyard/sideyard(?). overall, i am extremely happy with the results and being able to pull this much detail
