    Notes This one even floored me. I was totally not expecting to see this but there she is in all her glory! I plan to add some H-Alpha to it later. This image received a publication in the February issue of Astronomy, Sky and Telescope and Astronomy Technology Today magazines. It is my first publication and was selected for an ad for Sky-Watcher Telescopes. The Esprit 100, which was used to take the photo.
