Image processing was done entirely with Pix Insight and CCDInspector.
The field of view is about 27′ on a side, and the unbinned pixel size is about 0.78″.
Image processing was done with Pix Insight and CCDInspector. Guiding: Starlight Xpress Lodestar camera with an Astrodon MOAG.

The university hopes to partner with Inland Empire schools so that students will be able to view the sun, moon and stars from their own backyards.
“This extends to the people of San Bernardino and throughout the region in the Inland Empire, because it not only serves as a research and learning astronomical observatory, but as a place where the community can come and learn and take a look at the skies,” – Sid Robinson of CSU San Bernardino.
The smaller dome currently houses a seventeen-inch f/6.8 Plane Wave, Corrected Dall-Kirkham (CDK) reflector telescope (purchased through the Ole Miss Astronomy Legacy Project) with an SBIG ST10 CCD camera with an AO-7 adaptive optics.© Schram, Brandt Equipment * Software Bisque Paramount ME * Apogee U16M D9 * Astrodon LRGB filters * Astrodon MMOAG off-axis guider with Starlight Xpress Lodestar * Max Im DL * The Sky X Image Stack * L 300 Minutes 1×1 * R 240 minutes 1×1 * G 240 minutes 1×1 * B 240 minutes 1×1 Location (J2000) * RA: 23h 09m 03s * Dec: 18d 10′ 39″ Constellation * Pegasus Image Processing * Pix Insight Core V1.7 * Photoshop CS5 © Jimenez, Manuel Two Pane Mosaic Telescope: Planewave CDK 17″ F6.8 Corrected Dall-Kirkham Astrograph Mount: Paramount ME Camera: FLI PL 16803 Without Cover Slip Filters: FLI LRGB Date: December 2011 – February 2012 FWHM: 1,5-2,5″ Processing: Excalibrator, Pixinsight Total Exposure: 60 hours L: 30×1800 seconds (15 hours) R bin 2×2: 10×1800 seconds (5 hour) G bin 2×2: 10×1800 seconds (5 hour) B bin 2×2: 10×1800 seconds (5 hour) Trottier, Howard Approximately 12 hours of exposures 300 minutes in luminance (unbinned) 100 minutes in each of R, G, B, and Halpha (all with 2×2 binning).
