    Many thanks.

    I was hoping that it would turn out better, but the LP was so bad that if I stretched the image much more to show the full extent of the spiral arms the whole image started to turn yellow/orange. So I have pushed this one as far a my skills allow me to. I'm hoping to get out tonight for another target, which I may try a different tactic to try to deal with the LP, which is to use a LP filter in front of my colour filters and use slightly shorter subs (2-3 minutes). I will keep an eye out for your post/image. Good luck and clear skies!

    ST80? Brilliant work.

    Many thanks. Yes I found some advice on various pages that gave some ideas on how to improve the ST80, £20 and a few hours work later I have a very much improved telescope. This was the first imaging run with the modified version and I'm delighted with the results for a scope that I was only ever going to use for auto-guiding. In fact it has made me completely re-think some of my approach to AP.
