Here is another image from the weekend with the Finger Lakes IMG-4042 camera. This image is 60% of the full-size image. I didn't get enough images to go as deep as I would have liked, but it's still an interesting image.

I'm amazed at how tiny the stars are compared to my other images. This was a median combine of an unknown number of 5 minute images. I took a total of 11 5-minute images for luminance; the color is from an earlier wide-field shot with a CM-10ME camera. I applied a minimum filter to the stars in the color image to avoid color halos around the tiny stars in the C14 image.

Ron,

another great image!

Why do you think the stars are so small? Much better seeing?
