- This exposure
of the globular cluster M14 was taken July 22, 2004 by Steve Brewster.
It is the result of median-combining 3 60-second exposures. Further
processing in Photoshop© using its layers feature was used to show
both faint and bright stars. Comparing this image with one
taken by Tim Cann two years ago allowed for the identification of
6 RR Lyrae type variable stars.

"luminance" part of the image, which includes all the detail,
was made with the Stony Ridge 30-inch (0.76-m) telescope. The color,
or "RGB" part of the image, was added from another exposure
taken by another observer using a much smaller telescope.

NGC 6992 is the eastern portion of the Veil Nebula in Cygnus. This image,
taken July 22, 2004 by Steve Brewster, is a wide field mosaic of the
southern portion of NGC 6992 taken in red light. The field, cropped
to about 1/2 degree wide, was made by joining two fields from our Apogee
AP8p camera. Stay tuned as more images are added to this image to cover
the entire field which stretches north by several degrees.
