    That's a deep and rich star field for sure, beautifully processed too - as Leveye mentioned, it's screaming for a mosaic

    Thanks everyone! Yes mosaics are certainly in my future with this scope. And with the wide field of the 6D, a large area could be covered without too much effort.

    Paul I don't know what that bright star is. I haven't tried to plate solve the image, but I wouldn't be surprised if it won't solve, so it may remain a mystery for now. After imaging M8 and M20, I just manually slewed into the thick star field searching for just this sort of area. So I hit it by chance, and don't know exactly where it is, though it is close to M8 and M20.
