Wow two images on Astrobin within 24 hours - look out Gary Imm. I am working on projects but don't know when I will finish them - weather, FOV, and I have to get up early for work. This object (IC 410, the nebula, NGC 1893, the star cluster, and the Tadpoles) does not clear the trees until 11:30 as of this posting. Again, I did minimal processing - ABE and a slight curves adjustment. For 30 minutes I was quite happy. I have wanted to do the Tadpoles in particular for a long time but waited until I got equipment capable of producing a decent image. I don't expect this to done until mid-December if not later. - Cheers Kurt
