Beautiful Night @ Sammy Neal's

Nikon D100.  M31, the Andromeda Galaxy.  See M31 (WIP) for a better image, but I am really amazed at the detail in this 138 second exposure, with very limited processing in Photoshop.

Double Cluster.  I'm glad Paul asked me to shoot this one.  91 seconds.  The D100 picked up the red color of some of the stars in the region.  Compare with Double Cluster @ 180mm and Double Cluster from NHAC Neal Site.

M11, small crop, minor adjustments in Photoshop.

M11, Crop, 144 sec. exposure.  This is straight out of the camera, cropped at full resolution and saved as a (low rez) .jpg.
