Years ago in one of my first astronomy books I read that this cluster is now known to be ploughing through some interstellar gas and dust - and the book (now lost) had a picture showing the streaming

Honesty compels me to admit that this dark time has been very disappointing. Remember that we have our own time machine here so 6+ hours doesn't take 6+ hours!  lly

Layers! You need a hard stretch for the faint stuff and softer stretches for the bright stellar cores. I still feel I could get mine better in this respect and will chip away at it. Olly

A very easy click of the 'like' button!

I remember seeing this the last time it was added to and it continues to impress. The wispy patch centre right is as sharp as a terrestial image - amazing!

Olly, you are simply rubbing our noses in it here in the UK when you go on about 6+ hours of imaging in a night...... :embarassed:

Superb image :)

I get a sense of it moving 'up'. Like an arrow head with the dust curling under the barbs and being drawn back into the centre. Almost 'mushroom cloudy' if you know what I mean.

Gav does have a point about 'rubbing our noses in it'. Then you go and post a picture of your rig. We'll have no noses left at this rate!

Cracking image as always.

I've just imaged this myself. Processing is a nightmare. I'm struggling to get the dusty stuff through without the seven sister going crazy.

Eek, the past!!!  :eek: 

That image has contributed to the present one. It's one of several that are in there.

I now realize that short exposures are not really needed and that, in fact, a very soft stretch of the linear data usually has all that you need. I also take careful note of Maurice Toet's ideas, still,  because he knows what he's doing...
