Stuart Hilliker captured these images in Angmering, West Sussex, UK, on 12 July 2020. “I used a William Optics Megrez 72 telescope, a Canon 700D camera and an AstroTrac camera mount,” said Hilliker.

Eight minutes worth of useful data was captured over a two-hour period. Various exposure times and ISOs were used, with the most successful being at 15 seconds with an ISO of 1,600. The images were processed and refined using DeepSkySta­cker and later, Adobe Photoshop.
