Hi all,

Hope everyone is keeping well

Here is an image I've been trying to get since August but with the way the weather has been it has taking months to get the data for the image. The H Alpha Luminance is around 10 hours exposure over a few nights and the RGB is 2 hours on each channel

I had a little problem with the spacer on the field flattener when I was imaging back then. But the flattener is fixed since taking this image. This is the reason for the eggy stars on M52. I hate getting eggy stars a well they won't be in my next image. Anyway hope you like the image please click on the image to enlarge.

Very good work Carl - compares well with today's APOD http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html which looks to have taken in somewhat more transparent conditions!

Hi Paul,

That is the thing I miss most is those sharp crisp clear nights witch don't come along very often.
