Andromeda An improved version of last years shot. Last year's was a single image. This is a stack of 20 lights at ISO800. I also shot 10 darks but, interestingly enough could see no improvement when I used them. Stacking was in DSS. Post processing was in DSS initially, finished in CS3 for curves, cropping and a little experimenting with Focus Magic. Frames: 20x300"

Astronomy Quote of the Day

“As we begin to comprehend that the Earth itself is a kind of manned spaceship hurtling through the infinity of space — it will seem increasingly absurd that we have not better organized the life of the human family.” Hubert H. Humphrey, Vice President of the United States
