The Beehive was created by phoenix
Lots of mist last night where I am and tonight is no better. Had a go at M44 since a nebula was out of the question. The image had halos around the stars so I ran Noel Carboni's Diffraction spikes around fat stars which reduced the halos. Still prefer real spikes though since they have the rainbow effect.

Well i really like it. I always loved the way the orange stars float amongst all the white ones.

Interesting area at the centre of image towards the bottom.....looks like two identical double stars.

Kieran,

That's a wonderful rich colourful image. What camera and optics did you use? What exposures times,etc.

Kieran,

Nice work ... and this is from someone who likes imaging open clusters!

Oh yeah, I also like and prefer the rainbow effect you describe. :mrgreen:
