 Ok, this is 15 x 5 minutes/10 x Darks.  All with the equipment listed below.  I have always been kind of intrigued with this one so it was a pleasure to shoot!!

Thanks guys!!!  I am VERY pleased with this one!  Easy to process out and even the raw files at the scope showed fantastic details!  Was quite mesmerized by that first 5 min exposure.  On a side note, this area has a LOT of satellites going through it!!!  SEVERAL of the subs had sat tracks through them!

A number of geosats are present in that region, since it's near the celestial equator.
