Have you got the pics hosted anywhere? If not then try UKAstronomers and then just cut and paste the detailsIMAGE%20LOCATION. :grin:

When you post there should be "additional options" at the very bottom. Click on this to open it out and besides the "Attach option" use the "Browse" button to guide it to your file location and then click "post"

Hope this helps

:grin:

Your second photo shows a fair it of detail and a lot of colour information, stacking should improve them dramatically. There does appear to be a little elongation of the stars so watch out for your polar alignment or exposure length, are you considering guiding at any time? as this will improve this. Altogether an excellent effort on a tricky subject, it's often difficult to capture GC's without burning out the core, something you have achieved with excellent results. I am looking forward to your future pics.

For a 2nd attempt or any other number I think the definition and colour is quite exceptional. :lol: Is that line at the top of the image the result of stacking?

Shame you forgot to lower the washing line for the first one. :grin:

Hope you don't object to others mucking with your images but I just had to have a go at darkening the background,makes the cluster appear in a 'better light'.

Cheers
