Kevin: probably a Hydrogen-Alpha filter. That is an emission nebula after all...

Thank you for the welcome.
It is an Ha shot as orly pointed out.
And "round here" is relative, I am in rural New Zealand.

Yeah, rural NZ has a LOT less light than Singapore :)
I'm suprised even them a H-A filter is needed.
My very first time attempting star photography using standard camera lenses was on the beach in Hokitika and a farm driveway in Twizel :)

we should get our heads together, I have had mine since the start of the month, and it is quite a nice mount. I got it auto-guiding for the first time last night, after a guider failure.
All went well, I like it.

Hi Gary,

I saw your pix. Very nice. I'm new in this game. I hope to learn quickly before putting up my pictures. Cheers.

Alfred.
