I took this data a while ago, before I had corrected the tilt and aperture vignetting in my scope, so the stars aren't perfect. But I had a TON of subs on this, and I didn't have to apply any noise reduction at all. Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you have any critiques!

I started with ~1000 L subs, but had to throw out a lot of them.
