Great collection of shots Jim. And to me it seems a bit more daunting to collect 110 images of the Messier objects as opposed to visual observing. Plus, you have to visually observe or at least find each object before you can image it, then track each object successfully. One day I will get into AP and give it a shot.

Thanks, Michael and everyone for the comments!
Agreed, grabbing the images is a bit more involved, and then there's the processing afterwards while all you visual guys and gals are just dreaming of the night's images.
Us imagers are toiling away trying to eke something out of the noise. :D
cheers
