Takahashi FSQ106 telescope & STL11000 CCD camera
Exposure:   
LRGB = 50/30/30/30
Notes:        
This is a very rich star field that has 5 open star clusters and two nebulas (I can't see them :o) ) - While the files are very large, I suggest you take the time to download the largest version and take a "walk through the stars" - there are over 50,000 stars in the image!
