This image of the Helix Nebula, NGC7293, was taken at the Hale Hill Observatory near Spencer, Indiana over the nights of 24 & 25 October 2009.

An SBIG ST-10XMEI camera, mounted on a vintage AP 152mm Starfire refractor at f/9, captured this image with CCD Soft.  CCD Stack and Photoshop were used to process this image.  LRGB exposure times were: 112, 64, 64, 64 minutes respectively.
