NGC3576 (Statue of Liberty), NGC3590, NGC3572 and Gum37

Been a while since I popped in here, mainly due to a screwed work-life balance () and weather-induced lull in astro ... so much for a dry, cloud free summer. El Nino was a dud. I've imaged a few targets since Oct 23 and thought I'd share this one containing NGC3576 (Statue of Liberty), NGC3590, NGC3572 and Gum37 (Southern Tadpoles). It's a SHO image with about 3hrs per channel. Needs more. I've attempted to keep this more 'natural' looking and not overly saturated. Hi-res here. Shot with an SW Evolux 82ED, ASI294MM and Optolong SHO filters. Processed in PI. Thanks for looking, Alex.

Nice image Alex. Iím a big fan of the natural colour look. I totally hear you on the work life balance stuff too. Why is it the rare moon free clear nights fall just when a major project is due?

Thanks Ahmed. I've grown to really appreciate my 80mm refractor.
