This is an LRGB image of part of the veil nebula complex with a Starlight Express SXV-H9C.

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

These images are stacks of 9 5 minute unguided images. The rgb images were stacked using the program,

Keith's Image Stacker. Final adjustment was done with Photoshop.

The ddp routine in iCCD was used on each channel, LRGB.

This image was the first light of my new Epsilon 210 f/3 scope on an NJP mount.

The stars are a bit strange, maybe due to trailing, missing the corrector sweet spot,

maybe a tilted camera, or possibly all of the above. I used a kludged together adapter to

mount the camera on the scope. All things considered, not too bad for a first try.
