Cone Nebula Ha with double the exposure

I took another 80 minutes of the Cone Nebula in Ha tonight. This slightly more than doubles the total exposure time, and has the effect of smoothing out the dimmer portions of the image. I've reduced the size of the image here because to my eye that made it even smoother. Taken with New Astronomy Remote Telescope (C14 with ST-1001E).

If you'd like to see the full size version:

hi Ron,

Beautiful image Ron. At Christimas time I was reading someplace on the web that some people refer to this as the madonna holding the child when viewed in this fashion.

clear skies,

Very nice Ron, looks like you got the remote setup nailed down now. What Ha filter are you using?
