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.

Thanks a lot for your comments.
Yes only 5min. Ha subs used.
The reducer used is a Lepus 0.62X, off topic my setup used,

Look messy but it works.
