    I tried to vote to give this thread a 5-star rating and was told I could only vote once. Pity.

    the next Messiers on the list will be the both in Cassiopeia, and then the Little Dumbbell planetary nebula and the Spiral Cluster down in Perseus.

    Otherwise, the summer season AP on film will concentrate on the ultrawide captures of the nebulae in Cygnus-Cepheus-Cassiopeia-Perseus in H-Alpha, or mixed like no filter plus H-Alpha.

    Best,

    Definitely looking forward to seeing how you do with some of the objects you've listed.

    Your imaging setup seems tailor-made for the ultra-wide captures of the nebulae in Cygnus-Cepheus-Cassiopeia-Perseus. The little dumbbell however, might be a little tricky because of it's size and brightness. I know it was a difficult target even for my 8" SCT. Should be interesting.

    I am delighted that you share these consistently excellent images with all of us. The best equipment only reveals its optimum capabilities when placed in the hands of a master technician who is also an artist. I add my heartfelt thanks to the other well deserved compliments and appreciation that have been expressed to you by everyone here at Astronomy Forum.

    Thanks Mark,

    the Little Dumbbell will be possible just a red point. The Ring Nebula is also on the list, but it should be doable.
    The problem with the classic films in the astrophotography is their non-linearity - the reciprocity failure. So, with the exposure time on the nebulae and galaxies it is hit or mis, inspite of some rules derived from the experience.
    Let's see.

    Best,
