This is a target I first saw last year, and , well, just fell in love with it. I never thought I could ever get it other than through a paid subscrition to some set up high in the Andes somewhere. At the end of January though, I was delighted to find out I could just about do it from my back yard in SE Spain....if I was prepared to go 'low'.

Working at under 28° altitude (as and when possible over the last two weeks) I am delighted to have got this target . (I may yet try improve on it - but that wont be a big change and it won't be anytime soon).

Yes there are, I'm just scratching the surface at the moment and I think it's at least once a day where there's something that leaves me mouth agape.

I wondered why we don’t see more of it but I guess it’s isn’t possible from the UK 

No - not visible from most of Europe.....here in SE Spain, I just about got it. 😏

What a fantastic hobby....isn't it? We are forever being left in awe.....and forever trying to improve our own efforts at capturing the "heavens".

Indeed it is, I'm just itching a bit now for these curfews to be relaxed and the back orders to be fulfilled as whilst it may sound daft to some, I'm enjoying learning things again.

It is just one of those nebulas - mostly OIII which gives it a lovely colour base (even in false colour NB images). A nice change away from the "Reds".

Tremendous image! I've seen this target overprocessed many times but this is just perfect to me

Thanks for such kind words.......but I understand completely what you say about some images being overprocessed. To my mind that happens way too often 'out there'........

I have been lucky in that I can continue to image the night sky from my back garden......and I am learning something every day 🙂

You could say I've got "garden envy" at the moment :)
