Rolando,
Nice catch on this object - it came out real nice. I like you earlier post on NGC2574 too.

NGC 6045 etc.

Cool image Charlie! This is on my to do list, I just haven't figured out the field size I want. I like your "closer in" image - it has the advantage of better resolution than a wider field.

There is part of the cluster outside your field. Would you add a mosaic frame? Or add more luminance data to the existing field?

Dave,
Lovely image and great story about the observatory and astrograph. Congrats on the first light for remote control.

M8 from my observatory..

Nice result Rolando. Is it time to disassemble and get the surfaces coated? You might want that extra 25% or so when you go after the dimmer stuff.
