    Nice image! What kind of camera did you use?

    • Pete says:

      I live in a city where the light makes it impossible to do any decent photography so I use the Bradford Robotic telescope or the Harvard NASA robotic telescope to obtain my images. These images were all taken using the Bradford.

        I know what you mean about the light pollution — seems to be getting worse where I live. I’m envious of the gear you have access to! I use a Canon Rebel XSi — not as exciting compared to NASA equipment!

      • Pete says:

        use of Harvard NASA is free. Bradford requires a small monthly subscription, but allows a lot more variations in settings and targets. Access to both is online.
