Hello everybody I’ve just joined this wonderful forum so I thought what better way to celebrate than post my first image on here😁

taken last week when we had our lovely run of clear moonless nights here on the wirral, I only image with a modded 1100d but it does ok for a entry level dslr, my scope is a skywatcher Quattro 10cf on a belt modded neq6 that I installed myself, this image is just over 9 hours of 3min subs totalling 187 subs making it the longest time I’ve spent on a single object, no filter was used I found lp filters mess up the colour of stars and galaxies so I ditched it, gradients are a problem as a consequence but carefull use of gradient xterminator gets rid of most of it, 

thanks for looking

It is very nice image with lot of details but the saturation is too high

Thanks for commenting, I like lots of colour in Astro images some may find it abit over the top but hey ho it’s all personal preference 🙂
