Thanks to all for sharing the great pics this past week. I've been unable to reply individually so here is a group Ya-da-boy!

I'll add my most recent. I wasn't able to get any color but will the next time out. Looks like I got some good L.

M101, AP130 f6, ST8XE, 20x3mins.

A very nice M101. Great depth and details. Stars are really round throughout.

Real nice image with or wihtout color. If you do get it be sure and let us see it.

Yes there have been some nice images posted here in the past few weeks and it been a treat to view them all.

Very nice image. A good candidate for colour.
