After building up enough courage to brave my OBS again (found a funnel web inside), I took this image of the Swan in Narrowband)

HA 60 Sii 40 Oiii 40 Atik 314L at -15degC Heq6 f5 8 inch newt

I find this target hard to extract fine detail (and even harder to get the right colour balance in LRGB so the NB makes it a bit easier)

Comments welcomed

That's a nice deep result.

Thanks Olly

Funnel Web spiders are the most deadliest in the world. Their bite can kill in 10 min. They live in Sydney where I am from. Ordinarily they Stay away but they live in and around my garden.

I found one in my observatory the other night. It was dead but that's because a squashed it withou knowing on my last imaging session when I put my optics case on the garden ledge!

I am now totally committed to limiting the outdoor set up and set own down through automatic as much as I possibly can! So I am installing autofocus units and wide field optics to star align.

That's a beautiful image.

I don't know how you cope with the nature you have over there, the closest I come to danger whilst observing is slipping on a slug :) (and I've done that a few times - uggghh!)
