Held on to this one hoping to add more time.Wanted to see if I could get better detail on the outer arms. The clouds decided otherwise. Should start thinking about using dark frames, got too spoiled w/the no camera noise 10*F weather.

Thanks Guys
I appreciate the comments on both the pics. Rui, you know I was working this one. Not super happy w/it, but I think it came out pretty good. Love shooting galaxies. Bozo, I always use neutral (I've heard don't let the camera do any pre-processing, you do it afterwards). There wasn't much color there (cam. not mod'd) for me. Bozo how about an H-alpha filter. Thanks Marc
