The Image of M31, the Andromeda Galaxy shown below, was taken by Jim Zanardi at a rural observing site east of Solomon on Oct 30, 2008. A set of ten exposures were captured with a DSLR camera and 300 mm lens fitted to a tracking telescope mount. The exposures were combined in Photoshop (post-processed) by Tom Martinez to generate the final image.
The Transit image in upper left hand corner of page captured by Steve Blosser on 5-Jun-2012 with iOptron 60 Solar & 1.3 MP electronic eyepiece.
