This is six 15 minute exposures with an ST2000XCM and a C14. CCDSoft to capture, CCDOPS for cool and hot pixel filters and color conversion. Photoshop for processing.

That looks wonderful.

I did not know there were 3 stars at the centre that light up the neb.

Also, I found that the hot and cold pixel removal option in CCDSoft would not come on as an option when I was processing shots yesterday. Do you have to subtract flats before it turns on?
