I image with a variety of scopes from my heavily light polluted and poor transparency Bortle red/white zone backyard. Typical SQM 18.7 - 19.0. Processing is always a challenge especially due to the gradients from the ocean moisture which moves in on most evenings.
I usually do minimal post processing (mostly due to limited time). I sometimes use Pixinsight but these days I mostly use Astro Pixel Processor which is a very capable and more streamlined program although post processing options are a bit more limited than Pixinsight.
