Deepsky images through telescope

Imaging deepsky through my f5 / 750mm Newton telescope is a challenge. I think it is hard work and somewhat frustrating. I have put 3 examples here so far. I made all compositions with PictureWindow 2.0 EvalVersion. New are two images of through my GP102M Achromatic refractor.
