Techno Stuff: 5/28/07 ATK-16hr, Megrez 80mm APO at F/3 with 0.5 focal reducer, mounted on LX90 8" SCT, Ha 6nm 60 minutes total with 20 minute subframes, Binning 1x1, Autoguided with Atik-2HS and Guidedog from LX90, Darks Applied, Photoshop CS2, Image Analyzer
Notes: The Atik 0.5 focal reducer allowed for a wider field of view and good nebula definition. The stars ,however, were a distorted mess and required a lot of processing to get them back to normal. All in all it turned out pretty well.
