M57 - Ring Nebula

see notes

Starshoot DSCI, 1 exposure, 60s 6/6/08 San Jose, CA


This is one of my first attempts at a deep sky object. This is a single exposure, processed using the MaxIm Essentials software that came with the camera. Therefore, the color conversion is different from the majority of images displayed here.
