M102 LRGB with short 5s. Gain 400 exposures. No darks, no flats. Interesting test. A couple stars saturated, and had a difficult time stacking otherwise due to lack of stars. Luminance background is a mess so I had to clip it. Needs more fussing, maybe try again stacking Kappa-Sigma to try and get rid of the walking noise in the background.
