Of course Harry I welcome any critique, especially from a well seasoned and respected imager such as yourself, its how we improve, 

You could be right. As you know colour balance does and can vary  from one rendition to the next. I do try to minimise errors and my G2V exposure ratios goes a long way to help when processing. I did do some work on the H2 regions to help make them pop. I was quite careful not to introduce a colour cast only working on those areas of interest. I think when I collect some Ha data it might help define the areas and sort out that mid range magenta. 

very grateful for the feed back 👍

That's simply stunning Peter, I love the detail in core. As always, amazing processing...

Thank you Mark, the seeing was pretty good,  the guiding graph was unusually flat.

Very nice Peter, all the more so without luminance it has great detail and contrast + of course, lovely colour. 

To complete the picture (no pun intended), what did you use for processing?

Don't tend to see many RGB images! This is really nice, the colours so rich. Look forward to seeing the final results, though it's already looking great.

Thank you Lewis, I love RGB but you are right it's less popular, To be honest this one is only RGB because that's all I managed to get in one night 😉. My intention is to add to it, it has given me something I can build on.

First class, lovely vibrant colours and crisp detail, great processing job!

It was indeed a great night on Saturday, I attempted a mosaic of M31, captured 4 hrs of data (a lot for me in one go), currently wrestling with them in APP....

Thank you.... 4hrs is a lot for me too, even better to get 4hrs of clear skies with no moon to spoil things, that seems to be a rare thing 😉

Absolutely stunning. The colour is drop-dead gorgeous.

M33 was the first proper DSO image I ever did, so to see it like this is a joy.

Its one of my favorite objects and was quite a challenge the first time i imaged it... I just love the H2 regions in the object
