Fantastic image.

What do you use for your tracking and what software do you use to stack ?

Thank you both for the compliments

I have the camera/telescope on a Skywatcher equatorial mount that is finetuned by an Mgen autoguider. For the stacking I use the freeware Deepskystacker. The postprocessing is done in Photoshop.
