The CLS filter really allowed you to capture some nice detail.

I am actually looking at buying this EXACT same setup since I want a better visual setup and do not want to mess with a huge and expensive GEM when a wedge mounted CPC/LX200 will do the wide field imaging that I only have the time for anymore....
So I may be a emailing you someday to pick your brain on your gear/setup
Again, wonderful shot!!
