That's a great looking image of a very tough target, Carlo. You picked up a lot of very faint nebulae. One suggestion - the image has a slight green tint to it. You might try running it through HLVG on either the medium or strong setting - I think you'll like the subtle change in color.

Thanks again!

Carlo, it is great: excellent amount of signal and very nice colours.

I would deblur it a little.
