Hi Leo,

great and very esthetic view at this famos cluster.
Like the colors and of course those great stars.
Also this tiny background GX. It's the big benefit
to image with such a focal length.

Regards

Immo

I think that is the finest rendition of this cluster I have ever seen! Spectacular in all aspects.

Yes, great image! Clusters are hard because, to some extent, we are looking so closely at your optical system. Yours appears to be operating at its best. Very nicely processed, too.
