A very early reminder that our winter favourites are  about to make an entrance. Never get tired of Pleiades and Orion images.

You have got a great colour balance on this capture - tantalisingly (if thats a word) just out of the frame above the star Electra (to the top center) lies the very faint spiral galaxy UGC 2838  which is approx 237 Million light years away. I always look out for this in Pleiades images.

Great capture and processing Tony - your new processing flow working well.

Thank you Bryan. Your comments are always perceptive, constructive and really appreciated. I really did pay a lot of attention to the colour balance on this image and it’s lovely to hear that independently.
