Chris Newsome produced the following image of M29 on the 2nd June 2006. The image was taken with a Canon EOS300D through a Celestron C8-NGT using a CLS filter. This setup was autoguided with a Meade DSI through a Skywatcher 80T using MaximDL through a GPUSB autoguider interface. It comprises five 120 second exposures at 400ASA, calibrated and combined in Maxim DL and then processed in CS2.  Image Credit: Chris Newsome.
