Looking very good so far anyway. Well done! :)

Nice. Clusters are a surprisingly tricky set of targets to get right. Have you tried shorter exposures than 5 mins? I have had good success with 2 mins for brighter ones like M3.

Thanks for the comments everyone, thanks for the advice I will try shorter subs and lots of them, this was the first time using LRGB filters and I am more used to narrowband and longer subs :)
