About this image

Until I saw Dave Strange's image of this last week, I had assumed this object too small to be worthwhile, but I gave it a go. Obviously, the result isn't what the Hubble Space Telescope sees (well worth Googling) but then again our budgets are rather different.

Tolerably happy with the collimation following moving the mirror 40mm up the tube- to allow an OAG to be used. Star images are certainly cleaner. Now I need to buy some filters....
