    Thanks for your comment
    Scope was a AstroTech 8 inch reflector.

    Did you do something to get rid of the diffraction spikes that reflectors normally have? I was thinking of picking up one of those or the GSO version, but I don't really care for diffraction spikes.

    Sorry my mistake... it was a 100mm Stellar Vue. I have not done any astro photography for a number of years.

    Love it - such a wonderful target. Once again, I would not have expected such a nice result from a 100mm aperture refractor. This is a very nice image for sure though.
