Hope everyone is keeping well. I've been quite lazy about posting images lately. During lockdown i sold my Esprit 100 and went back to a Takahashi Epsilon 130 that i got a great deal on second hand but only used at a display.

Hi Richard,

Your images are sublime - the colours in M106 are exquisite. and the veil has a real 3D quality to it, very well done!

Clear skies,

Darren.

Those colours are so strong and vivid, Richard. 
Especially for the Veil Nebula. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hi Richard - glad to see you posting here - as always, your work is a joy to have a close look at. I particularly like the Veil Nebula, it came out great. Sometimes the multitude of small stars in the region can spoil the final image - but you have controlled them beautifully.

Thanks Brendan, I got very lazy indeed. You're right the stars need taming on the Veil. Starnet does a great job removing them, then it's just a matter of using a less stretched version to replace them. I did notice a slight misalignment of the stars in some parts which need attention probably down to when i recombined the channels after stacking.

I do the "same" in a slightly different way. I use StarNet too....but not to remove the stars, but rather just to make a very nice StarMask. Obviously then I can work on the nebula and the stars separately.....but I never lose sight of the stars :-)

I got lazy for quite a while too.....but some guys looking in here do not look in on FaceBook or whatever. I cannot contribute or comment on their observing reports but I think they still like to have a look from time to time what the photographers are doing. So I hope you will return to the fold.....your images are always tops and I am sure some budding photographers would appreciate more images from different people going up here.
