I posted this in an imaging challenge, but thought I'd post here too if that's okay?

Having started capturing data for this in Feb, I was beginning to think I'd never finish it with the awful weather of the last 2 months. However, last week finally yielded some clear nights so I've eventually managed to cobble enough together for an image. I tried not to push the processing too far and kept it simple, but I'm not sure how well I've combined the colour together.

Excellent image, I love the detail in the spirals.  This one has been my Nemesis, but must have another go at it some time.
