  3. Evening Carole, I have recently moved from light polluted Birmingham to Rural Spain where we are setting up our second remote telescope hosting site. I totally agree with you that dark skies certainly make a massive difference to the image quality and the amount of clear nights is also a bonus . Cheers Dave
  4. Thanks Peter, much appreciated. I am very pleased with the outcome. Dave

  9. This is M16 captured from ICAstronomy in Oria, Spain. The image was captured using a narrowband Hydrogen-alpha filter (Ha) as the moon was at about 70% this was a test of my new Ha filter. Also in the image is the famous Pillars of Creation.
