Floyd,
Wow! Great image!
It's amazing how you've pulled so much out of your scope. Nice resolution and clarity of the nebulosity.

Definitely equals or exceeds "Floyd Blue Specs" for quality photon capture and containment! grin

Laptops at Dark Sites?

Posted By Rod Kaufman

Laptops are a big nuisance in dark sky parties. I've seen a couple up at Pinos that were light beacons and despite complaints, one guy with a big tak left it on no matter what. The best shielding I've seen is used by Floyd Blue and perhaps he will chime in here. You can use a red screen and cut a cardboard box to provide side covers which is a big source of stray light from laptops.

That's soo cool!
I also enjoyed seeing your other images, especially M31 and the color version of the Leo trio.

Gobs o' galaxies

Posted By Rod Kaufman

Outstanding! Nearly Hubble quality views under conditions of poor seeing. This image as well as the one of m81 with the outlying structure are among the best I've seen in this forum.
