LX200ACF 16" and SBIG ST-8XME. Focal reducer used was Lepus 0.62X.
The close up Garradd picture shown was taken with my 16” telescope and in this case I used a median stack of 7*60sec + 11*120sec LUM subs. The number of staked on stars LUM subs were 14*60sec + 34*120 + 2*300sec pictures. Picture processing were done via CCDStack2 using darks, flats and bias frames and further picture enhancements done via Adobe Photoshop CS4. The color information in the submitted Garradd picture were taken at the same time using a WO FLT-110 telescope & a Canon 20Da camera.
