Great image Mark. I love those pinpoint stars and the sharpness of the nebulosity.

Here's the same image processed a bit differently to emphasize the nebulosity. I used curves in PS to bring out the detail, levels to keep it quite bright and show the nebulosity. I then used Neat Image to remove noise, increased the contrast and tweaked the levels again.

Beautiful. I love all those stars. Personally, I would be tempted to try to make the background darker. But I wouldn't want to lose any of those stars though.

Great image!

A neat image, Greg. I suspect it will be even better with autoguiding, even at fairly short exposure times.
