C11XLT f6,3 on AVX mount. ZWO1600MC cooled with IDAS LPS filter. 119 x 30 sec. unguided with darks and flats, processed in Nebulosity and Photoshop.
A few days a go I posted the same picture at f10, but with f6,3 gives better result. I still did not managed to guide with a off-axis guider. More than half of the pictures where bad!

Patrick, The first astronomy book I ever purchased was by an author named David Deitz. On the cover was a pic of the Dumbell. I twas not a bit better than yours -- and, in the 1960s, it took a mammoth scope to generate such an image. Yours is fabulous!
