Taken in September 2015 with SW ED 80 and Trius SX26C. I was interested to see how a deep sky object would image during the glow of the "supermoon", so I picked a relatively bright object - the ET or Owl cluster (NGC 457). LIGHTS: 28 x 300s, BIAS: 50, DARKS: 30, FLATS: 40. Post processing in MAXIM DL and Photoshop CC. The stars outside the cluster were reduced by the PS plugin StarShrink.
