Description

This is how it all began for me - My first ever deep sky image I took this at Texas Star Party in 1988 This was shot with an Olympus OM1 through a Meade LX-10 telescope @ f10. With an Off Access Guider. This was manually guided for 120 minutes. This was shot on hypered Kodak ektachrome 100.
