This was taken over a month ago on the 11th of May. I wasn't very impressed when I first took it so didn't bother with it. No flats so some fabulous vignetting to deal with and a bit of late post full moon thrown in to boot. GradientXterminator
I gave it another shot this morning in the processing vat and it didn't come out too badly. There's a bit of flexure from the ball head I was using, and there probably werent enough subs, yadda yadda but overall ... ok.

There one hell of a lot of galaxies in there if you go looking. Next time, stable mount, dark skies and longer exposures ..... and a chainsaw through the tree thats blocking out the rest of the season.
