    Most welcome everyone. I have another I am stacking, also one from my home which of course will be no way as good as a dark site. both images will go up as the day progresses.

    Those images show very well the difference between a dark sky and a light polluted sky.
    A lot of stellar beauty is rendered invisible due to LP.
    Anyways, thanks for sharing.

    Thank you. You want to know the messed up thing?
    The dark site shots were stacked 30 second shots to add up 2 and 3 minute shots for each. The below was 20 minutes average.

    I had an m51 from home but feeling depressed to post it
