16" F4.5 Newt on GEM DMK 21AU04 with Astronomic RGB filters and Orion filter wheel
This image was captured at Broken Hill in the remote outback of Australia by Trevor Barry, the seeing was very good 8+/10. The sope is highly modified and the GEM was designed and built by me, housed in my observatory. I recently designed and built a Peltier cooler for my primary mirror and used it to great effect to capture this image.
