    M45 (2014 Edition)


    Had a rare, beautiful night in Central Illinois earlier this week and managed to add some more data to my M45 collection. This image is a combination of last year's data captured using our club's CCA-250 combined with this year using my tandem FSQ-85 rig. The tandem data was captured in my backyard (street lights, city lights, neighbor's flood light, etc). I was able to capture a good amount of detail by keeping the exposures to 5 minutes and stacking a bunch of them....
    Data captured with the CCA-250 was obtained at PSO, a facility of TCAA.
