Class image Carl - lots of detail considering it was a pretty short exposure. Being M27 what it needs now is the colour exposures adding!

That's a beauty Carl!. Great feeing of depth within the image as if the viewer was suspended in space. Those faint lobes on each side of the nebula are very well captured. Nice work.

Managed to see Capella last night and a clear strip along the northern horizon 5 degrees high and that was that. Too much cloud.

Thanks for your comments lads I can't wait to get going with this scope under dark skies and getting it's full potential from it. At the moment I have to iron out all the creases so I will be ready for August  and the dark skies. I had a great time last night I even got to see  ISS pass over to I just looked up and there she was  it was between 3&4 stroke of luck or what.
