Nice image. There's very little substitute for a nice, big telescope.

Wow, those three images look great! I like the Ha versions, I haven't seen the Ring in Ha that often. Thanks for sharing.

That's incredible. Apparently it's extremely hard to get that outer halo, but you got it with only 5 minute subs? wow.
