Okay, just trying to fill up my page with most everything that looks reasonable. This was my very first attempt at galactic deep sky about 3 years ago. I've learned a lot since but have a very long way to go along this learning curve. My equipment is very basic, entry level but solid. I used a Celestron 1100HD Edge SCT on a Celestron CGEM mount. The OTA was configured with a Hyperstar reducer manufactured by Starizona in Tucson, AZ. I'm not sure how many subs were taken or for how long as I wasn't keeping track of such things back then. But was fairly pleased with the results. Maybe beginners luck! Anyway, It will be fun to watch the images improve as I gain more experience.
