This image of Plato was taken with a Meade 12 inch LX200GPS with a Televue 2x barlow (f/20). A DMK 21F04 CCD camera was used. Approximately 1300 frames were stacked with RegiStax.

The weather this night was seeing 4-5 out of 6, temp 65 degrees, slightly hazy, no dew, and some light wind.

Kirk -

Beautiful image. The processing is excellent - captures the eyepiece view on a very fine night.

thanks for posting,
