Well done Martin - the S&N photo was too small to do your superb image justice !

:cool:

You took the very words out of my mouth!

Having seen the large version it's MHO that it better than the M81 & M82 image. Congrats! :wink:

Strangely enough I have a letter in the Inbox section of the same issue. Does that count as 'published'? If so can a First be claimed or have two or more members of the forum appeared in the same magazine at the same time before?

Nice one Martin, a superb image of the highest quality, well worthy of being published.

Certainly shows what we can achieve in spite of the carp weather that has been plaguing the North western part of Europe this "summer"

Martin had his fabulous image of the Leo triplet of galaxies on the hotshots pages (p27)

Indeed he did, and a nice accolade it was too!!

Thanks guys. This image was a bit of a fluke really. I'd had miserable evening struggling to get the kit working, it was bitterly cold and I was getting pretty chilled when clouds rolled over. I waited about an hour and then decided to call it a night and pack away. Half way through the strip down the clouds vanished and left a sparklingly clear night. I could barely feel the keys on the lap top and had a real job setting everything up again I was shivering so much. By the time everything was up and running I was beyond shivering and could barely move. I just crawled off to bed leaving the kit to it's own devices. I had my electric blanket on full pelt and was still cold in the morning. I hardly slept worrying about all the awful things that could happen.

I don't think I would have had the patience to let it run for 4 hours otherwise. Learnt a lot that night!
