Was trolling through the wonderful photos the members shoot and had to share one I took in Dec at our dark sky site. The Canon T4i at about 200mm was piggybacked on my 10" LX200GPS. It was about a 30 second exposure at ISO 800. This is a single shot with absolutely no processing. To me that is what makes it so good. No 20 or 30 shots stacked, no darks or flats, no Photoshop, nothing.

Hey Bob, that's a great wide field shot and an excellent example of how easy AP can be.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks gentlemen! I love the color of Betelgeuse, the Flame is just starting to show, and there is a small satellite trace that shows up better in the original, especially when I zoom in a little, just a little below and left of The Great Nebula.

 

Thanks,

Bob
