    Nice image - I had to look very hard to see the green and magenta streak, it doesn't distract from the target in any way. Are you going to collect more on this one? You got some nice detail for an hours worth of data.

    That is a very nice image. It seems as if the bright nebula lies in the foreground of a dark nebula.
