I have been waiting to image this group for a couple years, weather here in Oregon (Eugene) just isn’t favorable in winter or early spring for astronomy. I was able to get out for a partial night in late May; high humidity shut me down by 2:00. :C

TEC 140 f/7, ST10XME LRGB (120, 15, 15, 15) 5-minute exposures -20 degrees.

I would have liked another 60-120 minutes of exposure time. smile

Sam,
I'm glad you were able to get out. Your image is a real delight to look over. Well done.
