A crappy Pelican. Underexposed and heavily processed to calm the noise down. Not much more to say about this one. I had great skies, but before settling for the pelican I ran into numerous problems as I was trying to do some imaging with my C11, that I finally had to give up, so I pointed the scope to the pelican with the NP101, mainly so I would at least get "something". And something I've got, but that's about it.
