I also took sets of flats, darks, and dark flats. I'm curious if there is stacking software out there I can afford, won't be too complicated, and will do what I want it to. I'm looking at Nebulosity. You can download and try their program for free - but it will add dark lines to processed images. I processed my lights (couldn't get the flats / darks to process...) and here's what I came up with (not bad =):
I ended up the session by trying longer exposures with my autoguider hooked up. The target I chose was the globular cluster M15.
