This is my first post on this forum. I thought I would post one of my recent images.

I have processed this image of NGC 253 from data I took in September. I was using my C8 operating at f/2.8 and my ToUcam SC3/Raw modded webcam. I have attached a midsize thumbnail, but you can access the full sized image as well as exposure and processing details at:

That is the best deep space image from a web cam I have seen. Great job!
