Amazing detail! 8) Superb image.

Pete, is there a reason why you choose a red filter over an IR pass filter? I thought the latter would give you even better resolution. :?

Yes Paul a very good reason.

I was tired, it was getting close to dawn and the IR pass filter wasn't fitted inside my filter wheel ;)
