Hi Stephen,

That is a really nice image of Hind's...good to see it in colour. May I suggest an orientation to match other images in the archive, i.e. north up?

Clearly you have a very nice telescope in a great location at E_Eye: Have you thought about imaging Gyulbudaghian's nebula?  I know it's very badly placed (from Spain) at this time of year but maybe one to try in the summer?

Great image,
