Wide Field Cygnus (Revisited)

A while back, I tooks a wide field image of the Cygnus area with my Canon 350D, piggybacked on my NexStar 8 GPS. Well, I managed to get *some* detail out of those images, but after the kind Mr Peonic told me how to actually use Noel’s AstroTools Light Pollution Removal (“You did read the readme.txt file, didnt you?”), this allowed me to pull an amazing amount of detail out of the raw images

Here is one of the unprocessed subs

Then I had a stab at pulling the detail out of it by hand

and then todays amazing image that popped out of the screen at me (excuse the crazy dayglo house colour!)
