Not much of a "Bright Challenge" but here's my submission for Lyra Double Double.

Scope: 10" LX200GPS
Camera 1: DMK 21AU04.AS (mono)
Camera 2: DBK 21AU04.AS (color)
Frames: Best 50% of 3588 frames from each camera @ 60fps
Date: 07/21/13 @ 1:57a.m.

I used the monochrome image as a luminance layer over the color image to add more detail.
