Yes I did ..... forgot to add that in the details (tiredness is the excuse there).

This is "only" 5 hours in total and usually I like that amount of time per channel so I am going to continue on this one for a couple more sessions as I feel I can drag more detail out of the centre of it.

I wonder if we'll get even another couple of 5-hour slots this winter, with any sort of good seeing. It's been pretty grim so far this year :huh:

Great result. I was watching you do this one live :)

It is an interesting exercise to swap the colours around. You can come up with the same result colourwise as the famous hubble picture of M1. I'm pretty sure that the HST image wasn't mapped in the usual way, and that in fact they probably used other wavelengths for their image. M1 is such a rich nebula with narrow and broadband data in many wavelengths.

Again, excellent, well done :)
