    A bit early in the season but an M45 for your consideration.

    4 x R-G-B @ 5 minutes each.

    STL-11000
    AP R-H scope 305mm f/3.8

    A Photoshop plugin helps emphasis the "brush strokes" in the nebula.
    There appears to be a green gradient from left to right.

    Clear Skies,
    Tim

    Very nice Tim. The amount of detail in those whispy strands is impressive. You must have really nice dark skies and good technique.

    Thanks Collin...
    A PS plugin (Astra Image) deserves the credit. The before / after is amazing with the results looking like focus was greatly improved.

    The skies are very dark here (21.1 SQM) with the Milky Way visible from horizon to horizon. During the Mars op the viewing was exceptional.

    You inquired earlier about using an image I posted and I replied YES in email but that may have got spam blocked. Feel free to use any I post here. Also any update on the STC-7 delivery (PM on ETA?)
