I've taken an artistic liberty with the duck. Hopefully you can see the ducks bill.

This has not been posted on Astrobin as yet, but the basic technical data is listed below:

Telescope: William Optics GT71 Field Flatter and Reducer 0.8

Camera: ASI533 OSC

Filter: Optolong L'Enhance

Integration Time:  145 subs @ 180 seconds = 7.25 hours

Sidcup July 2020 (Over several days)

All my processing is done in Pixinsight.

That's an excellent result.  Nicely processed with plenty of detail!

A cracking image for Sidcup!
