I took this 2 hour exposure using a standard Celestron 8" with focal reducer on homemade mount and hypersensitized Kodak 2415 Tech Pan film. Autoguided with a SBIG ST-4 autoguider.

WOW. Really nice. There's "something" about B&W photos that really appeals to me.

Very nice, tried to find it visually with my 10 " last night but no joy.

Gosh it's great to see more guys shooting TP film and doing the gas stuff. Nice exposure with lots of detail there. Would love to see a larger version. I also use ye olde ST-4. Keep shooting - more please.
