Here's a mono version of the Carina nebula shot @ 250 gain, 2 min subs. I shot flats and bias but no darks.

Although I had some focus slip causing me to turf half my data I'm still pleased with the level of detail.

Now I just need to decide if I should go narrowband or RGB for the colour.

As always comments and criticisms are most welcome. Thanks for looking
