About this image

A bit surprised to see the green colour but the 1100d is unmodified. Processed in Pixinsight.

Looks like there was superb guiding accuracy and a steady atmosphere. As well as the nebula, the star shapes and colours are good. David

Thanks David. It was unguided and a few subs had to be rejected. The lens is good considering it was at full aperture.
