I had been telling myself that most deep sky objects would not photograph very well under moon light that was greater than 50%.  To prove this I set up last night and found one of my favorite nebulas (as well as MistrBadgr's) the Apple Core Nebula.  Well, you be the judge.  Apart from being a little off focus, it turned out pretty good for a moon that was 78.5% illuminated!  This is 37 shots at 90 seconds/ISO 1600 stacked.

Looks pretty darn good to me!


Just need to eat a bit more of it before it is ready to be thrown at somebody! ;)
