Taken with a Canon 300mm f/4 lens on an Orion Sirius mount. Guided with an SSAG on 50mm Stellarvue finder Scope. 24 subframes were taken at 5 minutes each, ISO 800. An additional 27 subframes were taken at 5 minutes, ISO 1600, using a Kenko R-64 filter.
All subframes were focused using the camera's live view. They were converted to TIFF format using Canon Digital Photo Professional and were calibrated, aligned, and combined in ImagesPlus. The luminance and color images were aligned in RegiStar. The composite image was created and adjusted in Photoshop. Topaz Detail and DeNoise were then applied.
