Now that I have the details up on my web site - I can also put an image up here for anyone interested.
This is just a small section of the colourful Rho Ophiuchi region of dust clouds. I was lucky to get this section, even if not the most colourful area. Even from my place in Spain - this is very low in the sky - just lucky enough that the moon is out of the way and that to the south lies the sea......much less light pollution. For this I was imaging at abot 28.5° altutude.

Gorgeous image Brendan. Those dust clouds add a real textured feel to it.

Would that be Antares at the bottom right?

Clear skies,

Darren.

Good morning Darren - thanks for the feedback. Not sure if you visited the web site - in the early hours, I have replaced the image there. This image (here) is colourful and catches the eye on a handheld ......but in truth it was over processed. I have replaced the one on the web site with one, slightly less colourful but better processing.....I can tell by looking at the stars in each image.

Antares would be lower to the left - out of this image.....a bit too low for me I think. Around Antares....there would be georgous Orange/Yellow cloud (reflections).....you can just a hint of the yellow creaping in, bottom left of my image.

Hi Brendan,

I've just checked your website of the revised image, and all I can say is 'Wow!' 

Also, thank you for pointing me in the right direction for Antares - rookie mistake : )

Clear skies,

Darren.
