    Beautiful image. I especially like how you capture the nebulosity.

    I was wondering if you could post the following:
    - ISO
    - Exposure time
    - Number of frames (lights)
    - Darks and bias frames, if used
    - Filters used, if any

    I'm asking because, try as I may, I can only go so far with my images from my Bortle 9 area.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    approx 40 images, 30 seconds each. ISO 800. Nikon D5500. Photoshop really comes through with highlighting the nebulosity

    Thanks for the info, Squeege. I have tried the settings you list among the many combinations I have experimented with. At this point I'm certain the light pollution in my area is what limits me severely. Yeah, it's bad.
