It wasn't the best of nights for imaging. While the sky was clear, there was a lot of moisture in the air and the seeing was so bad, some of the stars were almost blinking on and off.

Nice considering the seeing Jeanette ::)
But isn't it annoying how the seeing is soooo poor:mad2:
Considering how beautifully clear the sky has been,
Gee you've got it all tracking well Jeanette!
Difficult to pull the contrast out but looking very nice for sure.

Looks like a great scope JJJ. Is that a crop or the field of view?????

It's a crop Mark. I need to work out issues with the right side of the field.

jjj, seems you're really getting the photo's at a cracking rate at the moment! Seems like you're taking astrophoto's 24/7 :)

Making hay while the stars shine Roger. :) I should be out tonight too as we have a week of rain forecast. But I'm all tuckered out. lol

You're a machine, jjj!! I picked up my RC8 mere hours after yours arrived, you've already imaged so many targets, and here I am still still waiting to attach my camera to it. Nope, no feelings of inadequacy at all! ;)

Always liked your work jjj, and this is not exception at all. Well done that is awesome!! :thumbsup: go 550d.

Nice bit of detail there and I'd say you've got that new RC8 humming!! :thumbsup:

Nice detail and great image scale JJJ.

The seeing has been awful here too - the sky looks nice but the results are nowhere near the level of expertise would expect you to produce.
M16 is a spectacular target and the smoothness of your image tells me that if your seeing had been better, your result would have been magazine material
