In spite of thin clouds crossing I kept as many frames as possible for best noise performance. Sorry, indeed, my post processing "skill" is aweful. The bright stars need to be processed separately but it is so good learning that images like this can be realised with small-scale gear in relatively short time -- a rewarding hobby.
