Stuart,
I love these. They are very nice. I am really impressed with the CaK prominences and the colorized Ha image is a glory to behold. Beautifully done on all!

Two thumbs up!! 😊👍🏼👍🏼

These are all great Stu, and I think the closeup of 3685 in Ha takes the cake!

Wow, brilliant results, my eye is drawn to your 430 due to our recent discussions and I now just see in yours what I’m not seeing in mine! I’ve been in touch with Rupert about it.

A great set of images thanks Stu! My seeing on Saturday wasn't too bad, just not as much time under the sun as I would like.
