Mars in Gemini on 4/21/08 (labelled)

Tonight, I decided to do a bit of wide-field astrophotography. I attached the D50 camera piggyback on my SN-8 telescope. This way, I could take some longer, wide-field exposures without star trails. I took several of these, but just had time to process this one – Mars in the constellation Gemini. The image above is the labelled version – I also uploaded the file without the lines/text for comparison. The full versions of these are quite large, but you can see more detail there. Here it is:

I’ll try to get the others up tomorrow evening, if I can get a bit of time to work on them.
