Made the most of three clear nights in a row. Initial run on this one - needs a lot more time per channel, it's still noisy as hell. Mapped colour a la RDC's method.

Dave - Wat indeed. WTF is mytobia and what has Jeff been saying about me!

Marc - Thanks man. Yeah, I'd ideally like to double the integration time on this one, The more I look at it, the less satisfied I am with it.

Trevor - Ha ha, you have to listen really closely, like put your ear up against the monitor. So far as processing is concerned, I have learned some new tricks with PixInsight so I was able to get a lot out of the original data. And yeah, I had three clear skies in a row. I think those Atrex experiments the US did must've shifted the jetstream or something! I am quite happy for them to continue doing so.

Noisy as hell? Really? I can't hear a thing, lol! Great job processing is tight, solid details while still preserving the wispy character of the nebula. Nice.

But I still hate the fact that you had clear skies!

Hey Conor, you saw some sky! Cool. Looks good-the detail is nice and I like the color mapping. Noise, like you said more time, but that is one H of a pic so far. Marc
