Great result, thank you for sharing with us.

Please, in future, use the photo uploading tool to host a jpg of your images here on the forum, it makes it easier for us with a preview. :o

A wonderful image with the really faint outer areas and the Ha regions showing up so well. Welcome to the forum and what a fantastic opening shot.
