Very nice images. Wind here in SD has been fierce and clear skies have been rare lately.

Mark, could your image be reversed? New at this but at the time I looked yesterday that bright bow shaped portion high and to the right in your image I saw a similar structure high and to the left.. my best look so far with new 'scope... thanks

Few reasons , proms change quickly , I am imaging straight thru without an erecting prism and I am also in the Southern Hemi all those things mean what I see will be different to you but mostly my orientation

Yes, Mark, straight thru without an erecting prism would give me the opposite orientation I observed
