Ok, Monsoons are finally done here in Arizona!  Spent some scope time last night knocking the cob webs off.  Here is 22 x 6 minutes/13 x darks/10 x bias.

Haunting image Ray! (that translates to super) Kind've fits with the season me thinks. Looks like a bugger to process with the variance in the nebulous areas. Haven't tried this one, cool image! Tim..

Interesting.  You don't see a lot of pics of M78.  I agree with Tim, looks like a processing bear.

Thanks, and yes, it is a bit of a chore to process this object.  Very cool detail though so worth the effort!

Yeah, you don't se very many images of it.  I think that is a shame to as it is a VERY interesting object! I love the contrast and depth of it.  Yes, it was a bit to process but I am happy with it.
