This is my very first finished DSO picture after learning and practising during 2 years. Due to bad weather and scarce spare time I cannt dedicate to much time to my hobby....

I do have O3 and S2 subs. My next step will be color in a few weeks.

Please comment which of both pictures do you like most. I do accept your cronstructive critics and PI processing suggestions to improve the picture.

Thanks a lot for your comments and help!
