I got in a second night of imaging while I was at New Mexico Skies. This image of Sculptor Galaxy (NGC253) was taken with Mike Rice's C14/ST-1001E riding on a Paramount ME. Exposure: 24 minutes total (8x3minutes). Deconvolution in Astroart, Histogram processing in Photoshop. Sure wish I had been able to get some color! I'll have to grab that one of these times when I am far enough south to image this gorgeous galaxy.

Very nice Ron. That 1001E seems very sensitive.

Wish I could get this one, but I'm too far north...
