Sorry last one I sent was too large. Trying to show what can be done with old outdated, inexpensive equipment. I cannot see any difference between this photo and those published using much more complicated and expensive equipment and methods, frame stacking etc. No photo processing was done other than scaling the image down to your requirements.
