Cricky, that's a close-up Carole. Some nice detail & lovely reds. Just check your Top and R/H borders, they could do with a slight crop though.

Thanks Ryan.  I have the unmodded HEQ5, and no secrets.  Just try to get everything secured tightly.  Try to shield from the wind if I can.  Sometimes the guiding is not so great and sometimes it is spot on.

It's a wonderful image well done.

I have recently purchased the modded version. I've had a few test sessions with it and think I am ready to push it past 5 minute subs. 

I'm hoping to acquire a 460ex mono soon, yours seem to be providing amazing results. Does it require refocussing between each filter change? 

Thanks

To be honest, I use Baader filters and they are pretty par focal.  I always check all the filters when I focus and mostly they are the same focal point and I don't need to re-focus.  For some unknown reason occasionally I have to re-focus Blue or Oiii and I don't understand why this should vary from one target/night to another.  So if they are all the same focus, I just set a sequence up and let it run.
