Paul,

really nice image.

The 10mm f2.8 really grabs a huge part of the sky.

I have the same camera and a 17mm lens, gives great results.

Welcome back !!

Paul.

Thanks! Yes so much easier to image with a wide lens. I could of stretched the signal a bit more but I was battling light pollution so thought I would leave it as natural as possible.
