Follow the link for annotated image. 10 images (+1 flat), each exposed for two to four minutes with old 300mm f2.8 lens. Tracked with Astrotrac, aligned and stacked with Hugin and Photoshop.

First time using the Astrotrac polar scope, it helped the polar alignment process tremendously.

Heya,

Man that came out great, wonderful to see the nebulousness around the sisters. And it's really cool that it's only 10 images stacked. I'm surprised actually. Usually low number stacks result in more noise. I'd be interested to see what a single light frame looked like.

Very best,
