I took this photo from my light-polluted backyard near Houston, TX. It is made up of ~50 subs (each sub exposure was 20 seconds long, gain of 140). I also took ~10 darks, ~50 flates, and ~50 bias frames to help calibrate the image. I took these pictures with my Celestron 9.25" EdgeHD telescope coupled with a Hyperstar lens and a ZWO ASI 294MC Pro Color camera. The subs were stacked and post processed using DeepSkyStacker and ReaConverter.
