Hi all - just wanted to share my first significant integration with my 294MC Pro and SpaceCat 51. Tough to get detail out of a reflection nebula from my city backyard so I'm pleased overall with how this came out. Including the Astrobin link since it's hard to get anything under 500KB!

I was going to comment that, given the lush tonality, I was really surprised at the lack of blue in the reflection parts of the nebula.

I did my best with the processing here but it was just hard to extract much color out of the image in general. I think the sky conditions were a major limitation but I'm pleased with the level of detail in the dark nebula.
