Great colours, good saturation but moody and muted. Very nice.

I just enhanced and enlarged the pillar region just for fun really but it has shown me 2 things 1. that with more ha subs i should be able to zoom in more and more importantly 2. i think that my scope needs collimating better.

Good one. NB stars aren't often as crisp as these in coloured images.

i have been practicing doing the stars separately then adding them back in to the image at somewhere near the end off processing, i have bean watching tutorials till they came out my ears lol but its very rewarding when it all comes together. :smiley:
