Here is a Sky 90 4-framer of the Merak region in Ursa Major. You can see the “broken engagement ring” the Owl nebula (M97) and M108 in this image.
As we are not creating scientific images here, but just “pretty pictures” we can do much as we want with the stars to give us what we think is the “prettiest” picture 🙂

Learnt quite a bit with this image from last night.
Mathematics is just another language – granted it is a highly complex language – but a language it is. Just as ordinary language attempts to put into words thoughts, ideas, and “reality” – mathematics tries to do the same with a different set of symbols for the “words”. The reason that the language of mathematics is so complex is because each individual field of study, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Analysis, is like a complete language such as French or German in itself.

Beautiful clear night last night (08/03/2016) although there was a LOT of water vapour in the air. Main thing – it was dark & Moonless 🙂
I got both frames on M44 with the Canon 200mm lenses and the M26C OSC CCDs. Left hand frame 18 x 10-minute subs, right hand frame 16 x 10-minute subs.
I have been after this image for a number of years but until last night the weather has never played ball.
