Above is a composite image from an 8" Mak-Newt using a Canon D60 digital SLR coupled to a 2X TeleVue Powermate.
Five 298 second ISO200 images taken at an ambient temperature of 27 degrees F were combined and processed
using
Images Plus and Adobe PhotoShop.

I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of this single, unprocessed 60 second ISO100 image (seen below). It was
one of the first shots with my first digicam, a Nikon CoolPix 995... gotta' love this new breed of technology! :o)
