That is absolutely breathtaking picture. Great capture. Looks like you have pretty good tracking.

Thanks for the kind words. 8)

I'm hoping to return to this subject later in the year with my new narrowband filters but right now clear skies would be such a bonus. Well, not right now as the Moon is back! :roll:

Moon doesn't matter when capturing in NB. I will be doing some more DSO myself as I just placed an order for an SBIG STF-8300M.
