This is a tiny object in the Tak FSQ scope but it came out pretty well. The central mag 15 star is easily visible. This monochrome image has had only minimal processing. Each sub-exposure was dark frame subtracted. I simply aligned and stacked the sub-exposures in Images Plus and then did a linear contrast stretch in Photoshop.
