Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.

Not exactly deep-sky stuff, but it is my other main hobby.  This is a 3D printed 5th order Menger Sponge, 180mm along an edge, printed on an Anet A6 3D printer using Rigid.Ink white PLA filament.  346 hours of printing and 1.5kg of filament went into making this mathematical object.

This is what the Sun looked like today from the New Forest Observatory.

Apparently loads of Saharan dust and smoke from Iberian forest fires dragged up here by Ophelia.

Got today’s EPOD with 3 very special stars in a region close to the Crescent Nebula in Cygnus.

An extremely deep M45 image taken with the Sky 90s and M26C OSC CCDs. Over 25-hours total imaging time using 10, 20, and 30-minute sub-exposures. The image “cleaned-up” beautifully with Noel Carboni’s AstroFlat plugin.
