Very good, the pillar's are outstanding!! You must have a decent horizon to get that?? 

Hi Ron - in truth it aint that good. This one barely clears the next door neighbours roof and points straight out to East Mids Airport. This is as low as I can go on my Southern horizon. Testament to these narrowband filters for OSC - they are really good LP filters

I have a small row of tree's to the South, just enough to hide M16 and the other good targets in the area!!

Must make more use use of my Tri Band filter I think!!

Agree - You've got the camera for it
