16 images of 4 minutes each were stacked, aligned and processed in Photoshop.
Total exposure time was about 1 hour.
Scope gear used: 12" LX200, at F6.3 used with Meade LPR filter.

Scope Used: 12" L200 at F/6.3

Camera: Canon 10D @ prime focus

Image details:

3, 4min unguided bulbed images where stacked, aligned, and averaged in Photoshop.
I applied a gradient radial mask for helping with a small amount of viginetting caused by the reducer @ 6.3.
I then masked a single 30 second image to help resolve the central core a little better.
