I'm both thrilled and bummed out about this one. I'm happy with the detail but unfortunately a previous problem with my camera left some serious field curvature, especially in the lower left. It has also been quite windy lately which has caused some difficulty. Oh well, one of the great things about this hobby is it will still be there on the next clear night that comes my way. I'll try it again soon I hope with a new monochrome camera and h-alpha filter! :)
