This is a combination of 30 images, each of 2 seconds The images were taken with a Pictor 416 attached to an Meade 10" F/6.3 telescope. A Pictor 201XT was attached to an ETX for guiding. Each of the images was corrected with a dark frame and a flat field. After combining, the image was logarithmically stretched.
