(Click on image to see my 01/07/2001 C14@f/26 B/W image)

Date: January 4, 2003
Exposure: LRGB: 26 exposures each - 0.04s x L, 0.1s x R, 0.3s x G, 0.5s x B
Processing: CCDOPS PlanetMaster to select best 26 of 50, AIP4WIN to center and median combine, AIP4WIN to create RGB and L, Photoshop 7 for LRGB and final color adj, then convert to jpg for website.
Conditions: Average
Scope: C14 @ f/22
Camera: ST-237A, -30°, TeleVue 2X Powermate
Comments: I took approx. 50 images each RGB, and L trying to "Freeze" the atmosphere. The conditions were not the best as the seeing didn't quite support f/22 on the C14 as can be seen by the soft condition of the image.
