NGC 6357 is a nebula about 5500 light years away in the constellation Scorpius near the better known NGC 6334, AKA the "Cat's Paw" or "Bear Paw" nebula. This nebula was also given the name War and Peace Nebula because of its appearance in infrared images, the bright western part resembles a dove and the eastern part looks like a skull. This photo was taken through a 8" SCT at f6.3 (1280mm focal length) and exposed using a full spectrum modded and cooled Canon 40D DSLR.

hi this is a fab picture. Interested to know if you have to crop it down due to any vignetting? I just got a f6.3 reducer for my C8 and am also using a 40D, but I'm seeing vignetting around the 4 corners of the frame....
