Hey, I'm back!!   It's been awhile since I've published anything cause I've been going through a bunch of cardiac/circulation tests and procedures, thankfully everything seems to be fine.  It's been difficult to get my stuff out, this summer, so I'm using 3rd party data.  Enough about me....let's get down to business!
Here's an image I am working on for a contest on Telescope Live dealing with clusters, so I thought I'd post it, even though it's only 40 minutes total of exposure time.  NGC 3532, also known as the Wishing Well Cluster, is an open cluster lying 1,321 light-years from Earth in the constellation Carina. Interestingly, this was the first target imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope. It contains approximately 400 stars.  The data was taken with the CHI-2 ASA 500N/FLI PL 16803 at El Sauce Observatory, Chile.
Anyway, hope ya like it!
Tom
