Well, the new UV/IR cut filter made a huge difference on my stars not getting blown out. The practice matches the theory, which is always good :-)

I neglected to take new flats after switching in the new filter, so the image isn't as good as it could be. Also only 20 lights.

Sigma 200mm + x2 teleconverter, ASI 294MC Pro, ZWO UV/IR cut, AM5. 20 x 300s. No guiding.

Excellent image, Peter. The stars are sharp, round and have good colour. The core of the cluster is hard to image, it gets blown out pretty easily, but you've done a good job of keeping it under control.
