Hi all,

June is not the best month for deep sky imaging, but at least I was able to do my..... first shot of the year.
I had to wait 6 months!

Here is NGC6820, that I have rarely seen imaged.
I used my fellow 155EDF with the TCC, STL11000 (at only -10C so image is quite noisy), and a 10nm Ha filter.
4h 15 minutes ( 17X15 subs), were used.
Lots of light pollution unfortunately, short night, and poor CCD cooling.

Here is the result, with soft processing.

PS I LOVE my 155, and each time I image I love it more and more...thank you Rolando for making so oustanding scopes and mounts: no stress, only fun under the stars. wink

Nice wide field. Do you have a cropped closeup?
