Another story of revisiting a previous target with a bit more experience. A similar story to my introduction to imaging Jupiter, this shot was originally taken in July of 2019, and mostly due to inexperience there was only a single usable light frame (of 30 seconds total exposure) to work with and processing it was just tweaking levels in Photoshop to get it looking as good as possible.

I figured now that I was a little bit more comfortable with PixInsight, it might be time to revisit the old data and see if I could clean it up any. Turns out that there’s only so much you can do with only a single light frame, but it does highlight just how much of a difference processing can make.
