Hello all,
I've been waiting for the clouds to leave so I could get some color data for this image but I guess I'll have to wait a little longer (It's snowing again as I type this). It has given me a chance to try some new processing techniques on the luminance, though.
ST10 on a 12" reflector @ f/9
21 x 5 minutes, 1 x 1
Seeing 1/5 (Beggars can't be choosers)
A gibbous moon gave me plenty of gradients to work on.

This looks good, Dan. What new techniques did you try?

Nice shot - Cal

Excellent! Sharp and detailed in the arms, with the core well-preserved.
