Oh-I like that Roger,

The colours and processing are bang on!
Well done.

Now I have an EWF2 I must get an LRGB filter set.

Nice.

I have never done an M45 I was happy with. I reckon it ranks as one of the toughest targets there is.

Good skills Rog !

I agree Chris... in the early days it used to be one of my "go to" objects but pretty much avoid it now... so hard to pull out the nebula without murdering the stars and something I never managed to master.

Nice one! A lovely target for medium field.  But frustrating visually - I've NEVER seen 7 stars with the naked eye, even when younger (probably not in good enough skies) and certainly no chance now with my old eyes!

Cheers,

Peter.
