Hi Res Version and more image details available at http://www.astronome...php?c=131&p=449

This image consists of 236 x 2 minute exposures at ISO 400 with a Celestron C8, Celestron FR at f/5.8 (1160mm), and a Gary Honis modified Canon 450D. Guiding is with ONAG On-Axis Guider, Lodestar autoguider, and PHD Guiding. Thanks for looking!
