Hi Mick, nice image and one I have been working on for a little while. I took mine with my CCD camera and it's quite big in the frame, but I need to bring more detail as your image above shows. Well done.

Thanks Brenda.

This image is  Binned 2x2,so effectively its not full resolution.Neither does it contain a Luminance image.I often find the "L" washes out the colour,so I sometimes don't use them.

I,ve kept the saturation low,as I often see images with just too much colour.

I try and do the minimal of processing,as you could be at it till the cows come home.

I,m not interested in perfection,just something that looks nice to me.

Appreciate your comment,and looking to forward to seeing your M101.
