Thank you everyone for voting for my image - I greatly appreciate it! @Doug - you have an excellent Abell 2151 image there as well. I don't know about you, but I found this to be a very challenging (yet rewarding) target.

For the August challenge, let's do NGC 7023 - the Iris Nebula.

Well deserved Scott. Am I reading this right, that this has 17 hours of exposure? Job well done.
