Here's an Arizona shot of the Dumbbell nebula (M27) that I put together in the last few days. It is of course doable from this latitude but pretty low down for me.

I'm very envious of your northern hemisphere connections, Steve :D

I think I've been very lucky. Dean is very generous with telescope time. I have access every other night. The Arizona monsoon is approaching though which generally means clouds until September.
Thanks mate. I like it too but I've never managed a decent image of it from down here.

We can get a fairly good view of this object from Southern QLD,from July through to August and September,its a real 'astrofest' object.Looking at gathering lots of data on this one this year.
I imagine from Canberra,your view would be minimal,great you could use some NH resources to gather the data-quite amazing how all that can be done.
