Still raining in Sydney ( day 15 ) Processing old data

Found some single frame images I took back in March using a remote shutter switch ( before getting into EQMOD, BYEOS, PHD2 , DSS and Startools etc ) so I thought to stack and process them to see how a processed image would come out
1 x 30 sec
1 x 40 sec
1 x 50 sec
1 x 60 sec
1 x 70 sec
1 x 80 sec
1 x 100 sec
ISO 1600
Canon 600D stock
Unguided of course

Nice. Maybe stretch a bit more and not clip the background as much? But could be just fine and it's me looking at your pic on a phone.

I know where you're coming from. This weather is driving me nuts. I'm also trawling through recent and older data. Reprocessing... Etc. Etc.

I'm west of you no rain as yet but I've got the cloud. I think this month there hasn't been many clear skies. Starting to get withdrawals....

Colours look good on my phone 👍🏼

The rain and clouds will clear for us all this weekend. Just in time for more than 3/4 moon, rising before dark and setting just before light..... Isn't that the way it works ?

Thanks guys appreciate the replies
I used a mask around the nebulosity in Startools to do my colour and selected Artistic detail aware
I leave the star field with low saturation and minimal colour and then invert the mask and adjust the saturation levels and colour bias in the nebulosity areas. I really like a black/dark star field with white / off white stars
I only had 7 subs to work with , no darks or flats
These subs were captured down the coast at my semi dark site so noise was on the low end even using ISO1600

Yes I agree, we need a break from the crap weather and get outside and do our thing.Friday onwards is looking promising
Clear Skies
