Default astro: b343 & cr419 pumped-up

3x600 seconds
Intes MK-69 (6" f/6 Mak-Cass 900mm fl)
Celestron CI-700 Mount w/Gemini
QHY8 CCD Camera
B343(LDN 880) is the dark nebula on the right side of the image and
Cr419 is the small open cluster hiding behind the bright blue star in
the upper left. There were numerous passing clouds, poor seeing, and it
was very windy at ground level. Not an easy night to image but, you take
what you can get.

Much improved. I thought there was more to the image than the first
shot showed.

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".

Beautiful picture. Nice combination of stars and nebula.
