Having fun learning astrophotography and exploring the night sky. This image was taken from my Bortle 8/9 backyard in NE Ohio on June 28, 2021 at approximately 1:30am EST. Equipment; Celestron 7" (180mm) Maksutov-Cassegrain 2700mm focal length F/15 telescope on the Celestron CGEM-II equatorial mount. Image acquired using the ZWO ASI294MC color camera. Guiding with an Orion 60mm Guidescope and the ZWO ASI462MC camera using the PHD2 software. To combat the light pollution, I use the 2" Baader IR-Cut Moon & Skyglow Neodymium-Filter. I used the ZWO ASIStudio software to capture 105 sixty-second subs at the High Gain (390 gain) BIN 1 setting. The best 90 subs were stacked/processed with Astro Pixel Processor with further image enhancements in Adobe Photoshop.
