thank you very much Tim

i like the spikes they are the joys of a newt and because i like them i modded my scope to accommodate them  got a bit of wire wool and ran it across the top of the spider vanes (not the sides) they catch just that little bit more light. but i have found that if you flock the sides of the vanes then it really reduces the spikes.

Nice, very nice. Not only the lovely detail and colours in the galaxy and the surrounding clouds, but the stars a wonderful. Like StargeezerTim quoted, almost like a fairytale scene.
