Full frame exposure at 50% resolution. Lots of background galaxies in the field. Color data taken from my image from 2005
Central crop at 100% resolution.
Optics used courtesy of Steve Davis' CN212 used in the Cassegrain mode. Due to a late start and other technical difficulties we managed to get only 2 fifteen minute frames for luminance. The image is a bit noisier than I like, but I was impressed with the performance of the OTA given such a short exposure.
