Yeah, I know it is a radio or X-ray telescope object but it does have a visual component that most astrophotographers seem to avoid or not know about. It could use a lot more time but thanks to lousy weather one round of shots is all I've managed and they were taken with a pretty bright moon in the sky. Since then conditions have been lousy for imaging. So I'm going with this. To see all I missed due mostly to lack of imaging time see Hubble's narrow band version.

Hi Rick you did pretty good capturing it and the details are super! the rainbow colored filaments are beautiful. and yet for it's size looks very interesting object. Great shot there looking forward to see more. Clear Skies

Certainly more time would have brought out the faint portions, but you did a good job on the brighter, colorful region. I didn't know that there was as much nebulosity in the area.

Very nice!

Hope you get a chance to redo it with good conditions and no moon.

I like your colours better than the hubble shot. Can't wait to see what you can do with better sky and longer exposures.

Kind regards
