Thanks all for your kind comments and support , very humbled
It just goes to show you donít need to spend a fortune in this hobby to capture good images with a stock DSLR
Canít wait to get outside again when atmospheric conditions improve ( havenít done any observing or imaging for 6 weeks ) However rain and lots of it is the most important thing at the moment !!
Thanks again
Cheers
