My 1st attempt at DSO photography, probably got lucky as it turned out to be simpler than I thought. I have been reading about astro photography for a year and never expected 1st attempt would result in decent photo.

I used Nikon Z7, Nikon 70-300mm lens on iOptron Skywatcher Pro. Took around 80 shots at f5.6 30 sec. No calibration frames. Stacked in Sequator (since I used it earlier for milkyway).

Shot required very little processing in photoshop.

Hope you like it.
