    Yaaawn , finally got to bed at 2 am - 1st night I have been disciplined enough just to take pics of 1 target

    2 hours worth of exposures

    A nice Spiral galaxy just off the handle of the 'big dipper'

    These look better if you 'make them big'

    And as before so so so much more going on just in the 1 field of view

    So great that you had a clear night! If you hadn't pointed out some of the finer areas, I'd not have caught them. I really enjoy your additions to the shots that help me understand what I am looking at. :yes:

    Would you stop worrying about boring anyone already? Sheesh! If no one were interested you'd not have any responses!
