Here's a photo I took a few days ago. Olympus OM-1, Zuiko 200mm f/4 lens. Kodak E200, 20 minute wide open. Push one stop during processing.

This is the raw scan (shrunk down to 800 x 640 pixels for display here). My next post will contain my best processed image, and a question.

And here's my processed image.

Can any of you do better? I'm a rookie at this and I would like to learn how best to bring out the nebulosity and darken the background without bloating the stars. I'm using Paint Shop Pro 8.

Thanks,
Doug

Here's a processed image of M31 using the same setup but exposure time was only 10 minutes.
