Description

This is the first image taken with my Takahashi FC-100DF telescope. For this image I used the 76D focal reducer which I still need to set with the proper distance. The scope itself appears to live up to it's reputation.

The Tulip Nebula is a target that I had hoped to capture last year but was unable to, I am now happy to finally have that field of view sitting on my computer screen as a background!

Description: I think it is obvious to see that I have darkened the field quite a bit.

Description: In this revision I lowered the mid values of version A slightly and down scaled the image by 50%. Although the mid values have not changed very noticeably, the upload time has improved dramatically. I'm learning! 8-)
