1500 light years away covering an expanse of 5 light years with a single source of illumination, the Flaming Star, AE Auriga.

RC8 + CCDT67 reducer (f5.1)
SW70/500 + QHY5/PhD (guiding)
EQ6
Canon 350D mod (APT)
29X180sec (no Darks) :mad:
ISO800
Deepskystacker, Pixinsight

The imaging took place at Loutsa, Chalkis, Greece(5/1/2013). The Pixinsight image processing is still at an experimental stage...so all comments are more than welcome...

Thanks
