The top image is a sum of 60 one minute images. A recent modification to iCCD allowed all images to be used.

This bottom two images were a sum of 47 1 minute exposures with a Tak Epsilon-210 on an NJP mount.
The image was collected and processed in iCCD with an SXV-H9C. The image was unguided.
The night had significant ground fog that the Eagle was imaged through.
For the most part, the stars are round. Purchasing a Takahashi Power Supply for the mount really seams to have helped
to improve star shape.

The middle image was processed using the zone system from Ron Wodaski's new book.
