we'll I finally had a chance to sit down and try to take a serious image with the new camera. This is a mosaic of a whole bunch of shots through a Celstron 11" SCT. Resolution GREATLY reduced, this thing would be absolutely huge at even half resolution!!!!

Very nice, what filter did you use to cut down the brightness?

Very impressive shot Andy!
Is a mosaic capability included in the SBIG software, or
did you do this manually?

Quite a project you took on there. That's a very nice image, too. How much sharpening did you do on this image?
