I started this imaging run around 3AM. Yes, I could have waited another month to get it at a more reasonable hour, but I have really been missing the summer constellations during "galaxy season". This was first light for my Optec IFW and filter set. I was really surprised by the quality of the color while processing it.

Very nice John.

The colors are quite vivid.

I am so glad you're back up and running.

I like the FOV you have on this. Can't wait for TSP and some early morning summer objects.

Thanks, Dave! Your new scope is looking good, too! I plan to camp out in Sagittarius and Scorpius until Orion comes back up, Dean!

Nice, John. It's never too early to collect photons. I've just picked up a 65Q, too, and am anxious to see what it will do off my EM-10. It seems like a sweet set-up.
