I wasn't very productive at OSP this year. This image is actually a by-product of testing I was doing to try to fix a problem with differential flexure. More than half of the frames had to be discarded because of the problem, but the few that did work OK worked so well that I wish I had taken the time to frame it better. I have cropped it here so as not to look as silly as it does in the original.

Thanks, guys. I wish your praise could fix the problem that forced me to discard more than half the frames. I still haven't figured it out.

That's a beauty of a shot, Greg. The detail is spectacular.

Very nice Greg, beautiful details.

Thanks, Trevor. Of course, I was planning to shoot it, but when I saw the elongated stars in most frames I had to figure out what was causing it. I failed!

That's one heck of a test shot Greg. So much detail
