Equipment

20in RC Optical Systems telescope Operating at f/8.4
Paramount ME Robotic Telescope Mount
SBIG ST10XME CCD camera with color filter wheel

L R G B color production was used to create this image.

Luminance = 100 minutes binned 1x1
Red = 10 minutes binned 2x2
Green = 10 minutes binned 2x2
Blue = 10 minutes binned 2x2

  • Luminance data taken on two different nights. The first night's data was taken through clouds- so the total effective integration time is less than 100 minutes.
  • 3 iterations of L-R deconvolution (sharpening) algorithm using CCDsharp were applied to the luminance image.
