Amazing depth and dynamic range - you've even maintained detail in the core of M42!

So, when can we expect an image from the 10"RC, Aggele?

By the way, I'm curious what you were shooting with this:

This is just scary. Look at all of those clouds of gas!

This area is not SPACE, it should be known forever from now as FULL.

So this is why cooled ccds are the rage!

That's brilliant. You've done a great job of controlling the bright stuff like Alnitak and it's amazing to see all that gasy stuff stretching from B33 to M42. I'm loving it.

B33 is my current project and I've only managed 11 x 600s Ha subs so far (over four nights - wind and cloud not helping!) Was thinking I need at least double that, but now I'm thinking four times!
