Anyway

Thanks guys..

Matt, it's a combination of the CLS filter (first night) and the SW LPR filter (the remaining nights). I did do a very slight reduction in the green channel around M32.

Really like that one John. You might be able to pull out a little more from the core as well, I usually find that the dust lanes have good detail almost to the centre, it's just tricky bringing them out.

Great shot anyways, looks very natural and clean.

Dedication brings rewards John, and you put some real time into this, and it rewarded you well. Certainly a great benchmark you've set here.

Thanks very much Guys... Tim.. I think there might be, and I'll have a play, but I'm not sure that's within my processing abilities as yet...

Thank you very much...Martina, lots of layers, although it was much colder on Saturday night, and it didn't help that much. Gary, I am.

Oooo very nice John. I do like a nice M31 and thats a cracker!

So hard to get the outer detail and not much up the core - you've done good job on the processing!
