"The processing is excellent, drawing out the detail and enhancing the structure to give a 3D impression of the crest of a huge wave ready to crash down".

- Mandy Bailey, Astronomy Secretary for the Royal Astronomical Society, Open University lecturer and freelance science editor

"As a burgeoning astrophotographer, tackling any deep-sky object is a formidable challenge, but to push yourself to capture its core, and at this level of detail, shows true determination and incredible potential. The stars are pin sharp and the wispy nebulous texture is perfectly processed".

- Steve Marsh, Art Editor at the BBC Sky at Night Magazine
