Antares: ~170 minutes-cm2 (11x 60s f/4.5 ISO800)
Lagoon and Trifid: ~140 minutes-cm2 (9x 60s f/4.5 ISO800)
Large Magellanic Cloud: ~60 minutes-cm2 (15x 60s f/4.5 ISO1600)

These look fantastic James. The framing and composition really show these subjects off. I really like the subtle hues throughout especially the golden glow from Antares.
