Hi Paul - unfortunately visually through a telescope the view is nothing like that, it's just a bit of a smudge really in this instance. The image is the result of about 15 hours worth of light gathered on a ccd chip. The 250 Dob should do you well though - just wait until you point it at the Orion Nebula or a few nice globular clusters :)
