It's my first astro photo. I recently acquired Nikon d5100 to mainly photograph in daylight, but since this forum's given me a bit of clue as to what astrophotography can be about, I decided to have a go at some random target. Target happened to be Plough,since now it's quite close to zenith and light pollution is quite bad around where I live. Not much nebulosity around this part of the sky, so concentrated on getting star details out.

So here, 6 images stacked in DSS and processed in PixInsightLE. Any comments welcome.

Nikon d5100@18mm, ISO1600, 15s each.
