Nice shots! What equipment did you use? I find DSS doesn't always take kindly to stacking loads of images. Also, using about 10 darks helps. For really big stacks, you can stack about 30 images at a time them combine all stacks using Microsoft ICE.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

I find stacking with these various packages very hit and miss. Sometimes processing the individual frames first can help, especially resizing them to a size more in keeping with the quality. Software that can batch process makes that a lot easier, of course. Nice images!
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.

Hi I use a Skywatcher 200p reflector on a goto mount, automatic focuser and a gpcam 290c camera and also a gpmono cam.
