Lovely image, Kevin.
What is the equipment you are using?
Was the image taken from a dark sky site?

Hi Paul,
I'm using an Omegon quadruplet apo refractor 100mmx580mm,on a Skywatcher EQ6 mount and the same Canon DSLR that I used with the LX200,subs were 2mins unguided and I had no bad ones.
The site where I am  is just outside a small village according to the map it's Bortle 3-4.
I'll post a picture of the scope,
                                                 Kevin.

That's some scope, Kevin. 
Both these images are top notch!
You also have a galaxy in your M 13 globular star cluster image. 
It's called NGC 6207. 
Super job

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hi Kevin,

Very well done on producing those brilliant images - M13 looks stunning!

Wishing you many a clear night, and I'm looking forward to seeing what else you produce with your new refractor.

Darren.
