You've controlled the bright star well and the stars in this image are better processed than the ones in NGC7822.  Try to remember what you did differently. 

It does look a bit to me like this has been done with a non modified DSLR which I know is not the case, and come out rather blue.  I am not sure how much data you can capture with a regular DSLR but you have done very well.

Leaps and bounds, going for the difficult ones now ;) The extra subs show in the lower noise and greater signal on the faint stuff - more is good!

Thanks everyone , on that blue Carol ,I've read up on this target and there is a massive blue star out of frame that casts that colour  over the area.hence the blue nebula.

You've done a good job of processing that one. 

Another really tough target :)

Yes i think its my new favorite with M16 as a close second, since dithering and obviously proper flats i have had much better results
Thanks for all comments,
Roger
