Swan and Eagle widefield

11x5 minutes, Redcat 51, L-Enhance filter, 80% moon

Half the subs were discarded due to cloud.

I'm enjoying the short 250mm focal length and it's wide field. The TS115 640mm is good too for closer views.

Thanks John and Martin. I might get one more shot tonight before a big low pressure system moves in.

I'd have difficulty picking a favourite. Rho Oph area is up there due to the colour mix; I like the Lagoon and IC4685 in one picture too - looks like a foot with M8 at the heel.
