With an un-modified Canon 5D MkII using 4-minute subs. I haven't bothered removing the annoying ghost flare from Deneb - BUT - look how much faint nebulosity has been picked up around Deneb and off to the right. This was totally unexpected. If I get 40 - 50 subs (100 would be better :D :D ) then I think this little beauty will produce the goods all on its own without the need for composites. Amazing stuff!!

A slight improvement (?) with some added NA/Pelican and NGC6914 data from the Hyperstar.

As a person who knows nothing about astrophotography, I'd definitely say that is an improvement. The nebulosity looks very cool!
