This was my "first light" image with the Tak FSQ last month. As always, your comments and suggestions are requested.

Outstanding shot, Mike. When the image started loading, "all" I saw was the upper left corner and a kabillion little pinpricks of starlight.

I'm guessing you're kinda-sorta' OK with it, huh? wink

Thanks for sharing, and cheers & stuff.

Superb shot Michael!! 8O I was trying to get the cocoon last night at a little longer focal length, but the clouds were not cooperating. :C Maybe next time. I'm glad to see someone got it!!

I like both versions, Michael! This object is perenially on my "to-shoot" list but I keep passing over it in favor of other "more glamorous" targets.
