About this image

500 x 25ms exposures with ZWO camera, 3144 x 2096 pixels, 25cm f6.3 Newtonian, processed in AutoStakkert and best 50 shots stacked (seeing IV to III) and processed in Registax (wavelets) and then Photoshop re highlights and contrast.

In the original Rima Birt is readily visible, with the lenticular widening noticeable, which shows promise for exposures when the seeing is steadier, and some additional magnification applied
