I took this image in the early morning hours of January 18th with the 20" RC Optical Systems Ritchey-Chretien telescope in the Advanced Observer's Program (AOP). This is a 90:20:20:20 minute LRGB image. We had excellent seeing--about 1.4" for most of the shooting.

Credit should also be given to Adam Block who manages the setup and also helped with processing the bright star.
