About this image

I had several goes on this over a number of nights with 600 secs using LRGB filter sets. Multi Star guiding with Maxim DL 6

I used Pix Insight to stack, followed by AP4WIN to calibrate Bias, Dark frames and Dome Flats as I find their algorisms best for removing artifacts. Pix Insight has a script  that will calibrate but I have not mastered this. Finally I used maxim to stack and combine for the final image
