Celestron C5, Nikon D40X w/remote mounted on a vintage Takahashi Sky Patrol 1. Single 44 sec exposure at ISO 1600.


After many trips from my backyard to the computer to get the focus right, the last 5 of 90 exposures finally did the trick. The image I stacked with Registar looks better but I was unable to save it as this is a trial version and alas had to submit this single exposure. I bought the Sky Patrol in 1986 to photograph Halley but after 2 weeks of rain in Hawaii clear skies in Denver with a digital is light years easier.
