This photo was taken as part of the competition from ChileScope.com (www.chilescope.com/), thanks to the access granted to raw materials from a remote telescope in the mountains in Chile.

 

Telescopes NN 2 and 3:

OTA Newtonian ASA 1900mm/500mm (F/3.8) + 10 position dual color filter wheel on German Equatorial mount

CCD Camera FLI ProLine 16803

 

L (Bin1) = 43frames * 10min (07:10:00)

R (Bin2) = 26frames * 5min (02:10:00)

G (Bin2) = 22frames * 5min (01:50:00)

B (Bin2) = 26frames * 5min (02:10:00)

H-Alpha (Bin1) = 20frames * 20min (06:40:00)
