Canon XTi at prime focus of Meade 8" LX10, standard tripod, wedge and fork mount. f=1250mm, ISO 800, 5s to 240s @f/6. (Original 3500 pixels wide.)
The Great Nebula in Orion taken from my balcony on the sixth floor in downtown Bariloche. Stack of 40 shots from 5s to 240s, digitally processed to elliminate the orange glow of urban sky and rescue both the bright central region and the tenuous nebulosity. Enjoy!
