Another rework in an effort to brighten nebulosity and resolve a bit more of the faint stuff. I believe this is pushed as far it will go, would need more time to improve detail.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I am just blown away with your talent. Excellent work. How did you manage to get a 2.5 hr exposure with your camera without it heating up or worse.

Thanks Jennifer, aj3 and Douglas.

Douglas, my exposures were 4 minutes each. I took 37 of those and combined them in a software program to give me 148 minutes total time(2 minutes shy of 2.5 hours actually). Even at 4 minutes/ISO 1600 there is quite a bit of noise enhanced by internal heating but the process of stacking raises the signal(good stuff) and lowers the noise level at the same time. The winter months provide better cooling which helps with noise reduction.
