Orion AstroView 120ST Equatorial Refractor Telescope (#09005)
Equatorial Mount that came with scope, unguided
Fuji Sd1000 para-focal to 25m sirius eyepiece Processing: Cropped in Adobe Photo Shop. 6 multiple layers, then cooled blue 82 and color adjusted with Deep Yellow. Exposure: 6 seconds unguided Other Equipment Used: HP-G series laptop, and You Cam software that came with the laptop. Notes: First deep sky photos. Utilized this star for its brightness, location in sky and the opportunity that it lent it self for learning the use of scopes mount and polar axis finder. I also find Ursa Major fascinating.
