Another Gorgeous image with that junky scope of yours :^) Must have a pretty good mirror. Who ground and polished it? Zambuto? Royce? Keene?
Just kidding of course. I really like your processing and the color. Exquisite!

Hi Steve,

Great image, good color and processing, If I remember correctly you re-figured the primary of the 13" Coulter your self, you obviously did an excellent job.
