Lovely image Peter, a difficult target I am sure and with 21 hours I guess you are getting the same sort of clear skies I have 36 on the trot now and again clear.

Super image Peter, and my favourite class of DSO, and it’s circumpolar from the UK.

Will definitely give this a go when the Obs is up and running, not sure how long it will take to amass 21 hrs though, even with the dual rig.
