Greg, couple of cool pics, good job. Particularly like this one, the color and the fact you don't see this one all the time. Marc

Thanks! The nights are pretty short here (I'm at about 46 degrees north), but with narrowband imaging it doesn't need to be very dark. This shot was made under a nearly-full moon also. One day as I was waiting for it to get dark I tried an H-alpha exposure of M16. It wasn't a great image, but the "Pillars of Creation" were clearly visible, while with the naked eye I could see only a few of the brightest stars in the sky!

Very nice pictures Greg. I envy your nights being dark enough to imagine quality pictures. Up here in the north it’s still to light.
