I originally DID but only got 5 subs and it just did not look that good.  Took me this long to finish it off.  BUT, last night was one of those good nights when everything came together and the gear worked like a charm!!  Was out until 0430 my time and only threw away a couple frames.  Just a GREAT night!

Just doing a comparison..  I think it's interesting between the similarity of our two individual efforts.

Hmmm, I wonder if we could combine data someway? With better results?

Cheers, Tim.

We could try that!  I like yours better though. LOL Wonder how we could send the raws to each other??? Saw a REALLY cool image of M-13 on Astrobin that was a group effort.  Came out incredible!  It can be seen here: http://www.astrobin.com/59754/
