Here's my entry:

High Resolution Version and more image information available at http://www.astronome...php?c=113&p=504.

This image was made from a stack of 206 x 5 minute subs at ISO 1600 captured with a Gary Honis modified Canon 450D (Baader Mod) through an orange tube Celestron C-8 using a Celestron focal reducer at f/5.8 (1160mm). Guiding was with an ONAG On-axis guider, Lodestar autoguider, and Phd Guiding.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you everyone for voting for my image - I greatly appreciate it! @Doug - you have an excellent Abell 2151 image there as well. I don't know about you, but I found this to be a very challenging (yet rewarding) target.

For the August challenge, let's do NGC 7023 - the Iris Nebula.

Well deserved Scott. Am I reading this right, that this has 17 hours of exposure? Job well done.
