Dragons of Ara

Hi all,

It has been cloudy here for too long and nearly forgot to how to things.

This is a target I did with a dslr sometime ago and wanted to hit it again with my current set up to see what I could achieve. This is just over 10 hours worth taken over Friday and Saturday nights.
Saturday night was a little windier than Friday so the mount had a little more work to do to keep everything in place, I could've got more subs but new job is coming up with early starts and need to be in bed at a reasonable time

The emission nebula is found near the edge of an otherwise dark large molecular cloud in the southern constellation Ara, about 4,000 light-years away. Born in that region only a few million years ago, the massive young stars of the embedded Ara OB1 association sculpt the fantastic shapes and power the nebular glow with stellar winds and intense ultraviolet radiation. The recent star formation itself was likely triggered by winds and supernova explosions, from previous generations of massive stars, that swept up and compressed the molecular gas.

Here is my take on it....
