Great capture. Personally, I like red tulips better than green, but both versions look superb.

That's Nice composition Brian, good to see that you are happy with the mount.

BTW Are your diffraction spikes added after if not what OTA did you use to achieve them?

Hi John , thanks ...  I'm very pleased with the mount TBH  , as you can see the guiding/ tracking  is pretty good ..  the diffraction spikes were added in PS .  I like them 😊.. however , I still need to have another play with these images ..the red version has a lot of green stars especially when viewed  on here .. and I would like to try and get some more goldish colouring on the Hubble version ..  

 The shots were taken with my Altair 130 .. but ignore the heading on the PHD pic , because it says Celestron .. just haven't Sussed out where I can change it ..

A beautifully fitting way to end Ottawa, Ontario's Tulip Festival. If I can ever get my guiding like this example I could die happy.
