Hello everyone it's been a very long time since I've posted on AM.

This image was taken last month from Coonabarabran, NSW. Australia. Equipment used was a Canon 6D with an EF200 mm. lens tracked on an Astrotrac.
7X2min. exposures 3200iso. Processed in Lightroom and combined and further processed in Photoshop. Comments and suggestions appreciated..

Very nice.  I want to photograph this complex some day, but I can't do it here with the heavy light polluted southern sky and Rho being low in the sky as well.  Perhaps going up to the mountains during the summer months.

Excellent, thanks for sharing.  This is one of my favorite dso’s and I’ll likely never be able to shoot it.  Keep ‘em coming.

Very nice shot of this iconic region of the sky.  You did a great job on colors as well.  What F-stop was the 200mm lens you used?  I want to try to capture this from my dark sky site soon.  Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the compliment.... I think it was f2.4..? I look in Lightroom. Wide open the lens has issues.
