Had a rare clear winters evening.. My first time capturing these targets. Astromodded 600D with no darks (but dithered every frame). Quite happy with the results for 1hr of integration time.

Colour calibration, saturation, green removal and asinh/histogram stretch performed in SiriL. No background extraction at all.

More colour work, star reduction and noise reduction performed with Affinity Photo.
