Before mod - note square stars with spikes!

Anza, CA

This image is made from 3x600second H-alpha, 10x300 Luminance, and 5x300 each of red, green, and blue exposures. The H-alpha data was added to the L and R frames. Almost all processing was done in CCDStack, final stretching in Photoshop. This was taken with a Vixen VC200L 8" cassegrain at f9 using a Losmandy G-11 with Gemini. Guiding was done using a Meade DSI Pro with a Borg 60mm achro. Captured with MaximDL.
