This one's a nice mix of my serious interest in bird photography and deep-sky imaging. The Seagull Nebula located at the borders of the constellations Monoceros and Canis Major.

Thanks Baz. Noel's Tools greatly improved my image results, can't imagine not using them now.

Hi Ron, thanks. No my scopes haven't been gathering any light lately, mostly dust. I did however rework my original that you may have seen. I squeezed out a bit more reflection nebula on this one.
