A milestone! First image shot from my backyard! And looks pretty great for being inside the light pollution dome of San Francisco! 😁😁😁 Bortle 7 here. Plus, the longest integration I've ever done -- 7 hours!!

There are some halos around the brighter stars, which is most likely the result of not having an IR-cut filter in place (I thought my light pollution filter blocked IR, but it actually doesn't!). And thank goodness for PixInsight's DynamicBackgroundExtraction! Truly magical!
