This picture of the Dumbbell Nebula M27 was obtained by Rob Conway (rconway at gate.net). He reports:
"I took this shot on 03/20/94 with my 10" Meade LX200.
I used Ektar 1000 color print film for the 45 minute guided exposure at
f6. No filter was used. Guiding was via a Giant Easy Guider -w- 9mm
illuminated reticle eyepiece. The resulting negative was processed at a
one hour photo store, then scanned onto a kodak Photo CD."

This image of M27, the Dumbell Nebulam was taken by Ted Inoue on September 16, 2001 using his Celestron C-14 telescope and a Finger Lakes Instruments Dream Machine camera. He used the Chroma Technology Red and Green filters in combination with a Hutech light pollution notch filter which rejects Hg and Na lamp emissions. for the Blue, I had to use an OxygenIII filter. The image is the result of around thirty exposures of 30seconds for each of red, green, blue and luminosity. These were then combined in Photoshop.
