This image was collected on Dennis Persyk's Takahashi 6 inch f/3.3 scope with my SXV-H9C camera.

The iCCD software (Mac OS X on a Powerbook G4) was used to collect the image and to do the color processing.

This image is a sum of 10 5 minute unguided images. The 10 frames of each color were stacked using the program,

Keith's Image Stacker. The three final color frames were assembled in Photoshop.

The imaging started with good skies Mag 4 but some high clouds did float by.

All in all pretty good Chicago imaging. My thanks to Dennis for allowing me to test iCCD with his scope.
