Messier 13 RGB 30 second subs

This is the results on an experiment with shorter 30 second subs with my ASI1600mm-Pro. With longer subs I found it easy to burn out the brighter stars when imaging on the 250mm Newt, so shorter subs mean fewer saturated stars but with the spin-off benefit of fewer trashed frames and rounder stars at full resolution. Its a strategy that is fine for broadband but narrow band I really do need longer good quality subs just to keep the number down for processing!

Image contrast is not great (I don't get really dark skies this time of year).
