Here's my entry for the month - Rho Ophiuchi Nebulae at 200mm:

High Resolution version and more image information available at http://www.astronomersdoitinthedark.com/index.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!

Thank you very much,Allan! And my hat's off to Jason as well - I thought his Leo I Dwarf image was extremely impressive. That's a very tough capture to do that well.

Congrats yet again! Great work on the Rho region. That is one of my favorite regions of the sky to photograph. And thanks for the accolades about Leo I being tough to capture. The hardest part is processing the darn thing.

Clear Skies,
Jason
