100x30s frames. Lots of moon in the sky tonight, but I went for this sharply defined edge on spiral in Pegasus as an experiment. Must try again when the moon is out of the way as it was hard to process the galaxy out of the moon light. Also, it was hard to find a good guidestar, so tracking and therefore starshapes are flawed.
