Ship Sailing On a Sea of Stars Keel Nebula NGC3199

The Ancient Mariner NGC 3199 one I took before but it never looked like this at all, An old wooden ship sailing on a sea of stars. This is a shot I did want to come back to and do it some justice as I was not happy with the first one I did. Now I believe I have done it some justice this time so much so I am also taking the other nebula in the first shot as well NGC3247.

Peter in part we in Australia we have NO high mountains so clouds dont gather like NZ or the UK. The hot flat land is made for clear skies not quite why I moved to australia but certainly an extra benefit. Many thanks,
