Large Magellanic Cloud Untracked

This data was taken in March 2023, only posting now since I've never been able to process this data properly. In fact - I gave the dataset to someone who I knew could process really well and used his process as my completed photo but I started to lose satisfaction in it.
I spent 10 nights imaging this target from my backyard during peak La Nina to get 3 hours total integration. This was the first mega project I ever did. I learnt a lot of things from this and use many of those things in my current images such as my Carina image.
If I were to show myself this image back in April last year, I wouldn't have believed you.
This is up there as one of my favourite images.

Deets:
Canon 55-250mm @55mm (kitlens)
F/4
ISO ???? (I forgot)
650d unmodded
3 hours total integration from Bortle 6, shooting into a bortle 8/9 lightdome.
Stacked in DSS, Processed in Siril, Pixinsight, GraXpert and Photoshop. This data is from March 2023. Happy to finally get my own process of it

As this image is very compressed, here's the "not-so-compressed" version: https://www.instagram.com/p/C8RfZ2wy...RlODBiNWFlZA==

That's a ripper of an image!

For 'only' 3 hours of integration time, the detail and colour you've captured is excellent.

Well done!

Thanks Steve!

Should also note that I didn't use a star tracker or ay motorised mount. So for all the 10 nights I imaged it, I physically sat next to my camera and readjusted.

Brilliant mate. It shows what you can do with small budget and large effort.
