These are some of the pictures that club members have been able to produce with our CCD equipment. To generate color images, we need to take multiple calibration frames with different color filters and then combine them together to produce what you see here. With a little practice, anyone can be producing images like these in no time. We are more than happy to help train anyone who is interested in learning more about this process.
