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.
