Comments:

Better than the 18 April 2012 image (below). Continuing to improve imaging and image processing techniques. Still have much to learn... Think I like this image... The color I think is about right as determined using eXcalibrator.

I first shot this using film on 27 april 1998. I was using hypered PJM-36 Ektapress Multispeed 640 film.The image below was a 2 hour exposure!

Then I shot it with the SBIG ST-7XME in May 2004:

 

Then I shot it at Rancho Hidalgo on 18 April 2012 with LX-200 operating at f/5.9:

Kind of yuckky color... :-)
