This image is the result of a small number of subframes captured quickly at the end of a night of visual observing in May 2015. The subframes have remained unprocessed until now when, during an extended period of bad weather, I thought I'd use them to test out some of the new processing routines in Pixinsight. I was pleasantly surprised with the result, especially given the lack of integration time in the image!
