Thanks Hopp and Conor. The FOV is more than what is seen here, this is a little more than 50% crop of the original. So let the reprocessing begin. I reprocessed this to get more of the dust details and I found the OP version a little bright. I tend to favor the natural yea!!!!!

That's a bitching FoV. So much data here. Most impressive man!

Thanks Bob, Marc and Mark. I used the Starizona method. I still need to work in aligning the stars better. That is one are that has been difficult for me. Mark, if you happen across one of these lenses you should grab it up.

Steve, the color went in well to your Ha pic. Did you go w/Starizona meth. or more of a lum. blend. Nice pic, captures the scale of that region. Marc
