This is a combination of 5 images, each of 480 seconds The images were taken with a Pictor 1616 attached to an LX200 10" F/2 telescope. This was using an F/3.3 focal reducer on an 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.
