Struggling with November weather again but after 3 weeks I managed 14 hours of data. I do like this part of the sky with so many colors and delicate dust.

Thanks for looking...as always

Beautiful object; the low contrast must've made it quite the challenge.

The low-res doesn't even remotely do it justice.

Thanks Mark, Warren and Chris. It is a novel subject and yes, the dynamic range is quite large:) I spend a lot of time on the Lum frame trying to pull out everything I can without overwhelming the picture.
Thanks again
Cheers

I thought, wow this is cool. Then I clicked the high res image.

Dark dust. I love it!

Nicely done.

It's been on my list for some time now but so far fall seeing and this year, the clouds, have made it impossible. Maybe next year.

Way to hang in there with this project and your poor November weather. Your high resolution image is insane, well done!

Good work on a hard target. Not much light to grab on to. Good job.
