Super shots, Lou ! Processing also great.... the positive is my favorite, it seems to show better the small details

Nice images, Lou!

Were they done with a 4" instrument or with a something larger?

Thanks for the views and comments, everyone.

Hi, Valery.

These images were taken in somewhat hazy skies using a Lunt 152 doubled stacked with a Quark Chromosphere at 3800 mm (f/25) on a Blackfly S camera (5 Mp).

Lou
