Absolutely splendid image Tom. Is this the entire field-of-view, or is your image cropped? If it is not cropped, would you spoil us with the full image, or a link to it?

Savage! :shock: 8)

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. . . .

That detail is amazing! And the comparison between the Hubble image and yours is very flattering to your skills as an Astronomical imager!

Wow... a 14inch SCT with 60 miles of atmosphere versus a 2.1 meter space telescope 230 miles up in a vaccuum... That's a nice image! (yours, of course!)

I'd love to see what you can do with the Pillars of Creation - it's a nice small field as well. If you took of the reducer, that might give you even better framing.

Sounds like a challenge to me... :D

Well done and thanks for sharing - superb image in all respects - imaging and processing.
