Messier 3
Observing location
Skywatcher f/5 200PDS
Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro, unguided
Canon EOS 700D
~18mins of 20s/ISO400 subframes

The first clear night in a while coincided with Full Moon, so I decided to go out anyway and have a go at M3 in Bootes. Exposure times were quite short as the sky background was too bright to get longer exposures, so I stacked more frames instead and I'm quite happy with the result. I'll definitely return back to this target when the Moon is less problematic.
