Very nice picture Ralph: aren't you overheating that AP shooting out all these images? smile
Just a bit of envy man! Here it has been raining forever. Paolo and I live in the same country but he seems to be imaging from another planet (mosty likely the moon)

Nice one Ralph! That scope is really SHARP!

Nice shot, with lots of detail. There's some vertical banding I see, and the galaxy is contained in a rectangular area that stands out from the border areas. Both are probably easily processed out. Neither detracts from an otherwise great image!
