      These are my last images of 2019 taken with my ED72 and 183mm pro to be replaced by a 533pro
      These targets are not easy due to location trees etc except M1 , there was a bright moon as well so are all lucky shots
      but at last i have taken them warts and all
      Anyway a merry Christmas to you all and a Happy new year

      My first image of M76 A bit rushed as clear nights are a rarity now
      30x120s Bin 2 Luminance ,SW 102 , ZWO 183MM Pro , OVL field flattener ,guided , processed in Gimp
      Took some Ha as well but poor results for some reason
      Seems an Oiii filter may have brought out some more detail
       
      i know its not great but just chuffed to have imaged it
