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.
The brightness difference between the center and the outer detail is at least 1,000 to 1. For this reason great care must be taken with exposures and processing to keep detail in both. The center exposure is short compared to the long OIII exposures for the outer shell. This was taken with an SBIG 16803 and a Planewave CDK 17 ... the image is considerably cropped. Sharpening and noise suppression software was utilized to accomplish this. Taken from my house in Foresthill, CA.
