    This image was acquired over the past months from July 16th through Nov 15th. Images acquired using MaxIm and ACP Expert. After culling the data, I ended up using 83 – 15-minute luminance frames and 68 – 15- minute frames for the RGB data for a total of 37-3/4 hours, one of my longer projects. The image was processed in Pix Insight 1.8. Imaged through my OGS RC telescope mounted on the AP1200GTO using my SBIG STL-11002M/FW8 and Baader filters. There was a strong glow in the lower left corner from nearby 2.27 magnitude Caph and two of the diffraction spikes is evident in the image.

    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice. The big distraction spikes aren't too distraction - quite amazing the level of detail in the image. 16" OGS ?
