That is a really interesting image, Albert. I love it! I don't think I've ever seen such a wide shot of this area. Really cool to see the "Stargate" asterism and the Sombrero in the same image. Not being an imager myself, I can't comment on the technical details of the image, but as a consumer of astro-art I know what I like and this is a great shot! Thanks for sharing.

I am putting a lot of time on the Elephant Trunk in Ha for now but I have a small window and it comes up pretty late this time of year. Anyway, this is 2.5 hours of luminance and color. I really like the perspective on these wide field galaxies.
