I did this image of Cassiopeia as I wanted some files to play with to get used to DSS, i'm both pleased with the result and disappointed, pleased because I snagged an aweful lot of stars and they are round pin points instead of blobs lol
disappointed because I know that the milky way runs across this patch of sky and I have seen beautiful images full of colour, I failed to get any of the milkyway to show up even after stretching, and any colours I managed to capture in the stars are very subdued, this is only my second attempt with DSS though and i'm sure there is a learning curve to navigate.
I'm sure the short exposure has a lot to do with my results though and much time will be spent experimenting ;-)
