Very nice Steve!

This is a beautiful target that I recently imaged only to test the new HEQ5.

I will have to give it another go with the ED102 for a closer fov, but the Sharpstar did pretty well.

The L-eNhance does a fine job with this target!

Very nicely processed!

thanks Jim... I have to return to the ED102 occasionally. I love the Raptor for being so much faster gathering the photons but miss the closer details of some objects.

thanks... the AVX works so much better for me with ~ 23lbs of payload and guiding has been excellent.

Nice image Steve. The Wizard stands out nicely. Congrats on the APOD too.
I always found the L-Enhance type filter really helps with light pollution.
