ZWO ASI294MC-pro with 50mm Canon lens at f4, livestack for 1 minute in SharpCap, 10C temperature setpoint. Ioptron sky tracker polar aligned mount. Image is twice this size at 4414x2116 but this is what shows when uploaded. Nightly clouds prevent a good standard image so I decided to find a way to include the clouds. Some day the clouds will clear and there will be more to show. The viewing site is a midwestern US city with Bortle 7-8 light polluted sky. Imaged July 2 2020 with near full moon not far away. This combination of camera and software can be used in some very challenging conditions.
