Hi
The good weather continued for a bit and I was able to get three nights to tackle this colourful object. It was taken with the FSQ106ED at f5, FLI PL16803 on a Paramount ME. Exposures are 8x30 minutes Ha, 7x30 minutes OIII and 5x30 minutes SII (cloud interrupted the last evening). The OIII and SII are quite weak here and had to be stretched more than the Ha. I could have done with more sub frames but I am pleased with the overall result. I tried this 3 years ago with a Starlight H36 and this can be seen for comparison on my website http://www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk
There is a larger version of this at the following link

Thanks for looking
Clear skies and best wishes
Gordon
