The Orion Complex 50mm
This was actually a second thought after my canon battery died after 2 hours imaging the Pleiades. Only managed 34 minutes of data on this before the wind picked up later in the night and I begun to throw out more subs than I was keeping.
Relatively happy with how far I was able to take it in post before it started artifacting and breaking down.

Equipment:

Sigma art 50mm at f2.8
Sony a7ii at ISO400 (unmodded)
Star Adventurer
Orion 50mm guide scope
QHY5 guidecam

Acquisition:
17x120" Lights
40 Bias
25 Darks
No Flats

Processed in PixInsight and Photoshop
Imaged from suburbs of Wellington, NZ (Bortle 5-6)
