While I'm uploading images, I thought I'd upload my favourite image from the last 6 months.

The A6300 coped with the Bubble nebula (NGC 7635) better than I expected, a nice contrast with the nearby blue star HIP115198, and the white stars of the cluster M 52. M 52 is apparently not the only white star group to be referenced by the moniker "The Salt and Pepper Cluster". I couldn't find one called "The Ant Powder Cluster" though. Any votes for this name.
