First deep sky of the season after a bit of work to make my set up more consistent for polar alignment, and having a drive glitch fixed. Now seem to have very good polar alignment despite having to move tripod indoors each time, so solution seems to work for me. I am happy to share if people are interested.

Hand stack of 3 x 480 s exposure 320 iso in Photoshop CC, adjusted for luminance and vibrancy, no sharpening.
