Thanks so much Jerome, glad you like it. It seems like forever since I was able to shoot anything. Clear all this week but I am on midnights. Seems it's always the way.

Thanks guys.
Trevor, this image has not been cropped at all, full field of view of my 8"
Steve, Like I said I have to be happy with it as it is all I have to work with right now. With paying for a couple of kids in university and dealing with the closure of my plant, a new camera is getting moved to the bottom of my gotta have list.

Well done Mark. Is this cropped at all, or is this the whole ball of wax?

I just recently had my camera modded. Up until about a month ago I imaged with a stock camera. If you are happy with this (as you should be) you will flip when you image this with a modded camera! This is awesome!

Thanks Mark. You are right. Sometimes it surprises me, sometimes not so much. However it is all I have to work with right now so it will have to suffice.
