Thanks Mike Louie Humayun and Alex.
We had clear skies down here last weekend and had three good sessions so we have another four objects to process

Great Sombrero Barb and David. Some good detail in the dust lane.

Very nice image with lots of detail, well done Barb and David.
Its good to see some more of your DSO images after many months.

Thanks for your comments Marc and Peter
It's been 5 months Lester. The delay due to firstly our gear dismantled installing our pier and David starting our ROR obs. Then Christmas -cloud-moon-bushfires - it seemed we would never get out again. :mad2:
Then last week clear skies at last :thumbsup:

Nice image, the detail is just starting to come out of the inner part of the dust lanes. Well done.

Great image B&D,
Good to see you back posting.
Enjoyed browsing your site too - some nice work there.
Clear skies and a new obs will see you going into imaging hyperdrive hopefully!

Very nice indeed.

Thanks for the nice comments Paul and Greg much appreciated
When we managed to get three good nights in a row we really did go into hyperdrive Doug :P
David did two all nighters so we still have 4 more images to process. After being starved of fresh data I'm really looking forward to working on them

Excellent work Barb and David. The dark dust lane looks rather sinister with details starting to emerge. Well done.
