Copernicus from Cape Cod


Optically, my old first-generation ETX-125 is one of the finest scopes I have ever owned.  Coupled with the seeing here on Cape Cod, which seems, on average, significantly better than that in Indiana, I've been able to capture some of my best images.  This image of Copernicus was captured last night with the 125.  The Lifecam was at prime focus (no barlow).  The image was captured with SharpCap and processed with Registax 6.  This is a stack of 500 images.
