A clear night enticed me to make an attempt at M57 (The Ring Nebula). Being relatively bright I thought it wouldn't need the length of exposure the galaxies had required. I am a bit disappointed it doesn't show a couple more stars with any clarity(other than the central one) within the nebula. Other photographers seem to be more successful in this respect so a bit of a challenge to see if I can do better next time (perhaps some longer exposures after all!). Details for this attempt: 2x 5 minute exposures @ iso400 + 2x 5 minute exposures @ iso800 with CLS in DSS & CS2.
