Hello, and happy new year from southern France!

Here is my last image taken on december 27th and 28th, processed only this morning on my favorite computer screen :-)

21X15 minutes , with my 155f7 StarFire EDF and the 155TCC, on the 900GTO mount, SBIG STL11000 at -25C, 10nm Ha filter.
Light pollution and moon were present but seeing was exceptionnal.
Processing by levels and curves in Photoshop CS.

Certainly an amazing image, and also a great lesson (to me at least smile ) on the need for really gathering the photons over several hours to get such rich detail and contrast.
