Michael - what great images you have. For the last six months as a supplement to the Cork Astronomy Club's newsletter and as part of trying to raise awareness of local astrophotography activities we have been sending out a monthly pdf file containing images taken by club members. We have called this the Image Board. As part of the observers group committee I have the job of organising this and collecting the images. With agreement of all concerned in the club I am now setting aside part of each month's Image Board to include a photo from a single Astrophotographer from outside of Cork. We introduced our first guest astrophotographer last yer and so far Simon Todd, Brendan Kinch and Richard Sweeney have all taken part. We would be delighted if you would agree to be our next guest. The choice of image is yours and would be presented by leading in and introducing you in any way that you would like to describe. If this is OK we can arrange to communicate offline and I cna send you a couple of examples of the Image Board
Many thanks

Great shot Michael.
This was one of my favorite objects to photograph and visually the area around the nebula is rich in patches of nebulosity from a dark site.
I always found it hard to get the colour of the nebula right as the nebula appears quite green in exposures. This was my last attempt (also taken from Victoria) using a similar setup to yours.

This is the widefield area around the LMC. The Tarantula is the bright reddish patch
