Rodneys first night out with his new NEQ6 Pro we just finished drift alignment and started some test exposures when this image happened. It's a single 300 second frame in a full moon sky taken 10km east of red deer alberta July 15th, 2011.  (Bortle scale 7 sky)

I processed this single frame and had to share it.

Starshoot pro on Meade LX200 8" ACF  OTA on neq6 mount, maxim dl capture and guiding with qhy5 on orion ST80.

Simple setup, pretty results!
