    Jason, this is one of my favourite objects. The second pic is really nice with great star colours.

    Beautiful image Jason!

    I wasn't even aware that Orion made an 80mm EON, but it seems to do quite well...especially for a doublet.

    Perfect size for framing the Double Cluster.

    Hi Jason. I also really like the second version of your Double Cluster image. Much more contrast, and I agree with Hondo (Scott), in that you really have a beautiful sea of colorful stars in this capture. Thanks for sharing this us Jason, and keep up the great work.
