Wow, very nice Mike.  That's great detail, processing and color.   Your stars look great too so I'll have to work on achieving this kind of result.  And whoa…that's a pretty serious OTA/Mount combination.  You sure aren't driving that stuff around in the back of a hatchback!   ;)    

Thanks for sharing.

John
