Coincidentally I decided a couple of nights ago to image this after neglecting it for some years.  Only moderate seeing unfortunately, so the stars are a bit blurry.  But the nebula was bright enough to take a fair amount of sharpening.  Cropped and reduced for the forum.

QSI 683 wsg with Starlight Xpress AO unit on 12" meade at f10.  Luminance 10 x 5 minutes, RGB each 4 x 5 minutes, Baader filters.

Cheers,  Peter.

Here's a wider view of M057. First time out with the telescope after the summer and only 12 x 2min exposures. I used a Canon 550D on a 6" Altair Astro Ritchey Chretien with an AP 0.67 reducer.
