Stacked with Deep Sky Stacker and processed with IRIS.  I would be interested to know what magnitude limit I should typically expect to achieve with this exposure / equipment (the zenith sky is supposedly Bortle 5 at my location but it's a long time since I saw the Milky Way even overhead from my location; although that could be down to my eyesight!). On the original image, there are a few 'elongated smudges' that appear to be galaxies of 15th magnitude (eg PGC62205 near Vega at mag 15.3).
