Hi All,
Had some issues with guiding and seeing on this image, but the detail is the best I have gotten to date.
8 x 15 minute exposures, 12"LX200 @f/3.3, ST-7ME, Lumicon's night sky filter...
Here is a comparison to the old version currently on my web site...

Thanks,

Don,
Very nice shot--you did indeed bring out lots of detail. Question: is the image cropped? Or is that your entire FOV at f/3.3?

Nice shot Don!
I like this one better than the one on the link, shows more detail...

Thanks for sharing, and keep it up!
