Details
Date Taken: 01/18/2014
Photographer: Ken Griggs
Location: Lehigh Valley, PA
Other Telescope: Canon 75-300mm EF Zoom Lens
Mount: Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount
Other Camera: Canon 7D
Processing: Pixinsight
Exposure: 6x120 sec
Other Equipment Used: BackyardEOS, Stellarium, EQMOD
Notes: First image in a while without my Astronomik clip-in filter. Wanted to see how I could do without it. Needed a target near zenith considering I live in orange/red, and the Double Cluster fit the bill nicely. Didn't expect to have an image worth producing, but my tracking was good and everything from a mount control perspective was behaving.
