I'll bet you're pleased. That's great.

I think you could look at your colour balance which is very green-heavy.

In Photoshop, if you use it, or in other graphics programmes, a good colour balance starting point is to look at the histogram in each colour and get the top left of the peak to align in each colour.

Very nice.

Nice to see what I might be able to expect with my (hopefully) next scope :smiley:

Thanks all, and thanks for the advice, I'll have a play with the colour when I get a chance, I did think it looked a bit green.

Stunning! I would be well happy with that. Some really nice detail going on. You've the same slight issue as me at the moment which is I need to work on the galaxy core which will probably involve some layer masking - as far as I know. It's a tricky balance to strike without blowing out other parts of the image.

Thanks for all the nice comments, I think it was about 40 x 1 min subs but cant quite remember now, I actually stacked the subs about a month ago. Looking forward to these clouds going away so I can get back out there!
