Techno Stuff: 6/15/07 ATK-16hr, Megrez 80mm APO at F/6, mounted on LX90 8" SCT, Ha 6nm, one 40 minute exposure, Binning 1x1, Autoguided with Atik-2HS and Guidedog from LX90, No Darks, Registax3, Photoshop CS2, PixInsight

Notes: I was having some tracking problems while trying to image this object which weren't resolved until about 3:30am. So I went for broke and decided to do one long 40 minute exposure and just leave it at that. It turned out pretty good. :>))
