Well I am more than happy with this result. Admitedly a rather bright subject but from from NYC I was not expecting such a good result, especially with the two hazy 90+ degree nights nights this was shot on. Tried not to overcook the processing as the data was plain terrific. No frames from the previous unguided shot was used. Going to run a HaOiiiSii series this week as skies permit.
