Poster: ClownFish (see all of this user's photos)
Description: This is a montage of these three Messier jewels, created from two images. These two photographs were single 30 minute exposures on Fuji 400F Provia slide film. The photos where captured with a stock Meade LXD75 8" Schmidt Newtonian using an Olympus OM-1 and hand guided with an Orion 910mm focal length guide scope. Enjoy!

I think the camera is not a big deal...the guiding is..as well as the polar alignment, drive accuracy and a dark site. Great picture...you are really an astist..
