    Very nice. Could you post the setup, details of the lens, and of the shot please? I've been wanting to do shoots like this.

    Lovely shot I'm quite jealous.
    The nebula looks a lot bigger than I'd expect with a 102mm, so I assume you have an eyepiece in the system too (not taken at prime focus). Can you give us a bit more info on the set-up?
    The skies round here will probably never be clear enough to match your shot but it would be useful to know if I do get a chance. :thumbup:
