One of my first deep sky images taken a couple months after purchasing my first telescope. I was so amazed with seeing the nebula through the eyepiece, then I was blown away when I took a long exposure with the camera. This was 9 minutes worth of 10 second exposures at 12800ISO, stacked with darks and flats in DSS, and processed in Photoshop.
