The data has been reprocessed using PixInsight. I took advantage of the background extractor tool which vastly improved the quality of the image. I have a lot of LP to one side of the house which introduces a strong gradient in many of my images. PI gives me a way of keeping up with the rest of the astro imagers on SGL!
