This was taken by Bill Hughes from 7000' up on Tenerife while on holiday. Two jpg frames (120sec at 1600ISO) were taken and calibrated by the camera's internal noise reduction system, then stacked and processed in Photoshop. The camera was a modified Canon 500D fitted with a 200mm/f/2.8 lens.
The telescope was the Skywatcher 80ED, sat on the Meade 14". The Meade's poor drive system is controlled by my even older H9C, aided of course, by the very long focal length of the Meade guiding the much shorter focal length of the 80ED.
Calibration was done with flats and bias frames in Astroart, and finished off as an LRGB photograph in CS6.
