nice work on the pinwheel, such a beautiful target. Hope you put all your subsets together to improve the SNR to work with. Always worth going for what you can while you have the chance. The more data the better, damn the moon especially when its a new target in your collection you go after whatever you can get and deal with it all later on. its the best thing about deep space targets that you can build up a data set over months if you like. The more data the more work you can put into your postprocessing workflow and eventually the better the final image.

Oh Martin I feel your pain imaging with a dslr in the summertime 😖😖
Nice job for your first go at this well done keep at it and do come back to this one and try again on a cooler night. I just had a go at this recently too using similar equipment and also using startools (love this program) 😍😍
