    totally agreed! Most of us dont have the kit, skills, heck, patience to get this kind of shot so it's amazing to see

    Thanks chaps the other efforts from last night were a very poor Heart nebula which is mega feint and although I managed to get 2 1/2 minute exposures (much longer than before) it still isn't enough by a long chalk to unlock this lovely nebula - when i get my auto guiding setup I should manage 10 minute exposures!!! again if you squint you can kind of tell its a heart
