From the Mollie Brown Observatory 12/03/18 . . . While aligning the 8" LX90, it chose Capella as one of it's alignment stars. It' the third-brightest in the northern celestial hemisphere. Its almost 43 light years away and is actually a quadruple star system. Two of the main stars are 12 and 9 times larger than our sun and orbit each other closer than the earth orbits the sun. I shot this with and without difraction spikes. Which do you like better?

Another interesting set of images. I cannot really tell you which I like best. Both have their own merits. If I had to pick one, I would probably pick the one with the defraction spikes.
