This image was the result of post processing 26 exposures taken at ISO 1600 for 5 minutes each with a 130mm refractor and 1.6 extender. The exposures were captured on the night of April 30, 2021 and the seeing wasn't good. My tracking was a bit off as scintillation was an issue. This image was cropped a lot. Dithering was used and flat frames, dark frames and bias frames were all used in Deep Sky Stacker to assemble the images.
