Mike, regarding the red in the swirl, my FSQ-85 compile (8hrs) shows it (after careful handling in PixInsight) and the tiny ball of H-a below it, as does Rolf Olsen's EXCEPTIONAL image of it. I am sure it's just a processing nuance, but I am definitely going to try CorA again when all the snow and cotton balls naff off!

Here's the link to my shot (first person this season )

Meah....yeah, probably just a processing nuance, mate...hmm?..have to ask though, why out of such an extensive field full of so many bits and so much stuff, did you focus on just this tiny insignificant little detail

Yes, it's very impressive Mike, but the missing red did catch my eye, so there

Great stuff Mike. Not 100% sure about the colour but it's certainly a very nice wide field view.

Hi Mike,
the FSQ is still amazing to get pin point stars corner to corner
with a 36.88 36.88 mm large sensor.
Not many systems can claim that.
