One of my top objects M45, Those lovely Blue  stars embedded in that nebulosity
makes a splendid Image, I never tire of seeing picture of those lovely ladies.
The ED80's are such fine telescopes.
I think you must have had your  Focal reducer in their Dave, is that correct ?

It's an Equinox ED80 so f6.3. Don't possess a focal reducer, but did use a field flattener.

Another neighbour has just installed a "security light" so I'm now surrounded by them neatly spaced at 120 degrees going on and off all night as the foxes prowl about :hmh:

It's beautiful. The nebulosity is well recorded and the cluster is marvellously framed.

Think you need a NP filter (neighbour pollution filter) or failing that.................... a holiday down here in the Lot.
