Here's a 100-second-long image of NGC 2683 (the UFO Galaxy) in Lynx that I captured remotely on 2/15/2013 using the Bradford Robotic Telescope's 14" f/11 Celestron C14 SCT and FLI MicroLine camera located on Tenerife in the Canary Islands. A Celestron focal reducer yielding an effective focal length of 1877mm at f/5.3 was employed.
