Thanks Alex. I pushed the saturation, maybe towards artistic levels, but this is one of my favourite images - got the brown dust starting to show up as well as the colours.

Thanks Anthony. I should have had two more images from last night but forgot to refocus after changing filters; looks like I get a reprieve though as it's clear again tonight.

Have to say Tony, I like it better than the image Peter Ward linked to with the same scope type. WELL DONE!

I'm partial to the saturated colours myself so it's looking good

Thanks guys. I brushed up on the mechanisms behind the different colours - blue=reflection nebulae, red/yellow=emission nebulae, brown/black=dust. Pretty basic but I forgot somehow.

Great image but that halo around Antares screams at me
I am so trying to image the same but not having much luck.
So well done!

Thanks Nik. I guess the halo is a filter reflection? I haven't become fussy enough to address such issues so far
