Description

This image is a combination of data collected at Sugar Grove Nature Center with a CCA-250 / Aspen combo and from my backyard with my FSQ-85 / QHY-22. Combining the Aspen data with the QHY data loses resolution and FOV but it allows me to augment information gathered at the observatory while playing with my kids, always a bonus!
The observatory is property of TCAA.
