IMPORTANT! As you have probably noticed we have upgraded our gallery and transitioned from our old website. Some accounts on old site were missing name information and they will appear on profile and photo pages as "N/A N/A". If you are one of those users you can easily update your name information if you visit your profile page.

This is the first image from my Orion 120ST with no filters except for Mother Nature. It was hazy and partly cloudy most of the night. I used a SAC7 at F/15 with a 3X Barlow. I stacked 50 images manually and touched up in Photoshop to bring out the cloud belts. The haze kept the brightness down and prevented the usual fringing you get from achromatic refractors.
