Thanks all for your very nice comments.

It's a way better match to the scope than the Televue TRF2008 I was using. I am getting pin point stars to the edges now and there is no false colour introduced by it. I had to get an adapter from Starlight Instruments for my 3.5" focuser this cost £99 pounds which was a bit steep but I got the flattener for £100 off of book price. So £300 all in which is a sight cheaper than the £900 for the official one.

Regards

Kevin

One of my favourites. Doesn't appear over processed and feels so real.

I'd run through the streets screaming if I achieved that! lol Or at least have it framed. :(

Beautiful stuff.

Hi Kev,

A real gem to be proud of. And as no one else has mentioned it, a fine M110. You have captured the odd shape of the outer star layer. Not often done.

Thanks again for the great comments. :D

The detail is just showing in M110, Dave. I'm hoping to get it framed better next time and add some Ha. Just wish this gloop over the UK would disappear :)

Regards

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

After my measly attempts I am hardly one to make critical observation, but I like the reworked one better. The framing is more pleasing to the eye and gives the galaxy a stronger feel of motion. The background brings the galaxy out better in the revised version.

But I like the dust lanes on this earlier version more as they appear (to me at least) to be slightly more clearly defined.
