I have posted a few fireballs captured with this equipment, most recently a Kappa Cygnid. I just wondered if I could produce a stacked image to enhance the MW as it was seen faintly on a single 8s exposure. Here is the result of an hour's worth. Captured with Sharpcap and applied ABE in Pixinsight and stretched. PI could not completely remove the severe vignetting of this tiny lens (probably also glow from Lincoln and nearby towns)  but I thought the result was interesting.
