Taken in September 2015 with a Trius SX-26C and ED 80. I had great difficulty in post processing this image since the nebula always seemed to get engulfed by the sea of relatively bright background stars. In Dec 2015, I had another attempt but this time I processed the star layer separately from the nebula. I then merged the two processed images via PS masks. The main advantage with this technique is that it allows you to more accurately control the star layer so the stars don't so bright or large. I quite like the result. LIGHTS: 20 x 300s; DARKS: 30; BIAS:100; FLATS: 40 all at -20C.
