Congratulations Anton. It's sad that we'll soon be losing this showpiece nebula as it delves slowly into the evening twilight over the coming weeks.  Sad

BTW how did you take the picture?

Thanks Andy, yes I shall miss looking at this wonderful site so will make the most of the time left before she disappears below the horizon. The image was at prime focus with my new Skywatcher 150 and EQ3 mount, it was my first attempt with this scope and even though the sky conditions were not all that favourable I was pleased with the outcome. I took 10 images at 30 seconds each and then stacked them.

Thanks

Well done,Anton. These  all to often cloudy skies really take their toll on astro.photogrpahy here.
