Moon. Shot through IR pass filter - the idea was to get better seeing. It is my best moon pic, I don't know if it was the IR, the seeing, or both.

SharpCap Pro with Seeing Monitor was used. So the file was only 400 images, but all were keepers that were 2 Std-Dev or better above the mean.

I stacked 300 out of 400 frames in the video file. The file was 22.8GB, from a ROI of 3200x3200 and 16-bit color.

ASI071MC Pro was at -20°C which gave very low noise images to stack.
