Over 1000 subframes were stacked in DeepSkyStacker for this image. ISO was set to 6400 with 2s subframes with a total exposure of the stack of 36m 04s. The limit of 2s was based on a limit of approximately 0.8s at 0 degrees dec (the allowable value to avoid drift is the celestial equator value divided by cos(dec).
