LRGB Image 009-09-05T02:23:00

My first try at an LRGB image. This is the center portion of the image. Each of the L, R, G, B images were the combination of five images, each of two minute exposures. Astrodon filters were used, an Apogee U9 was used on an LX200 12" F/10 telescope. Images were corrected with a dark frame and a flat field.

A Megrez 110mm telescope was used with an ST-402 for guiding.
