This first batch of images were taken by Skyshooter. Most Images cover a minimum of 1.7 arc seconds per pixel. NGC891 RGB Optical Guidance Systems Ritchie Cretien 12.5 F9 / Camera a Finger lakes Site chip.
M33 High Res RGB Optical Guidance Systems Ritchie Cretien 12.5 F9 / Camera a Finger lakes Site chip

Taken with a 10" f/6 Newtonian Hypered Tech Pan film 140 minute exposure (manually guided) Date of exposure: 10-7/8-94 Location of site: Gates Co., NC, USA. Taken by Scott Preston S. Justis Astrophotography home page:

The next two Images below were take by Tommy Taylor. M-102 was taken at 200 seconds with dark frame subtraction. Finally, there is an M-15, shot with the same Celestron/ST-7E set up but with an Astro-Physics mount replacing the original Celestron fork taken at the end of October, 2000. This is a RGB composite with 120 seconds for Red and Green and 150 seconds for Blue.

The image below of M51 is a combination of 18 five minute exposures. Taken by Rockett Crawford with a ST-7 ABG CCD camera. The telescope was Celestron 11" SCT on a Losmandy G-11 mount using a F/5 focal reducer (1375mm). Location was in Oklahoma. Image processing was flat field correction, DDP, and some histogram stretching. Date taken was May 28 1999.

The image below of M13 is a combination of 10 five minute exposures. Taken by Rockett Crawford with a ST7 ABG CCD camera. The telescope was a Intes MN61 6 inch F/6 Maktusov-Newtonian on a Losmandy G-11 mount. Location was in Oklahoma. Image processing: Flat field correction, DDP, and histogram stretching. Date taken: July 22 2000. Note: I had dew zapper off and corrector plate became fogged over at some point in the image acquisition. I'm going to reshoot this one again soon.
Awesome image of M13 the star cluster
