It would be a real shame to drive for 3000km and not take advantage of the great skies out here wouldn't you think?
Here's one I shot during last months new moon from Uluru,NT with my then working ML 8300
Object: IC 4628
Exposures: Lum=19 x 6min RGB= 15min each
Camera: FLI ML8300/LRGB Filters
Software: Astroart5/PS CS4
Hope you enjoy.

You can really see the difference that dark skies make, Louie. Love the vivid colours in the neb and stars. The contrast between the star fields on left and right is very interesting too.

Like that Louie, out in the red centre huh? Appropriate colouring then :thumbsup:

Nice colours and processing in general Louie, but I think there are two parts of the nebulae in the field that look over blown to me. The prawn itself and the small nebula above that. The rest of the image is superb though with great colour and smooth looking background.
