The Rho Ophiuchi Nebulae

High Resolution version and more image information available at http://www.astronome....php?c=17&p=494.
This image was made from a stack of 123 subs of 5 minutes each at ISO 800 taken with a Gary Honis modified Canon 450D (Baader Mod) and a Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM at f/3.5. The camera was piggybacked on a Celestron C-8 and guiding was with the C-8, an ONAG on-axis guider, and a Lodestar autoguider.
Thanks for looking!

@Mo - your 50mm and 85mm plan is a great idea. This image will eventually part of a 50mm composite for me. Rho Ophiuchi is the highlight of the area, but the entire region is quite incredible.
@Warren - yes, I agree on lots of great ~200mm targets. I'm looking forward to grabbing all the great summer targets over the next few months.

I have to travel a bit further south to really capture this beauty. At a mere ~19deg ... *sigh*
