    M57 as photographed by Martin Germano. This great b/w photograph was obtained with Martin's self-made 14.5" f/5 Newtonian, stopped to f6 (12"), exposed 15 minutes on hypered Tech Pan 2415. This is a single exposure taken from Martin's house in Thousand Oaks, CA.

    A newer exposure of M57, also from Martin Germano. He took this photograph in October 2002 with his 14.5-inch f/5 Newtonian stopped to f/6 (12-inch); a 10/11 minutes exposure on hypered Tech Pan 2415, from Figueroa Peak (Lookout, CA). The October ten minute image was "fixed" in Photoshop to mask the 'trailing' in over a dozen stars that was caused by a wind gust near the end of the exposure. This image is a Picture Window 2.5 blend of the October 2002 image and an August 1995 eleven minute (at f/6) image taken from Martin's house in Thousand Oaks.

    [M57, W. McLaughlin]

    William McLaughlin took this colorful CCD image of the Ring Nebula, Messier 57. This is a true color image. William took it at his ARGO Observatory with a RC Optical Systems 12.5-inch RC telescope at f/9, mounted on an Astro-Physics 1200GTO mount. It is a composite of four images with an SBIG ST10E CCD camera, exposed 5 minutes each, and 8 exposures for each color, with a FLI "Dream Machine", 1 minute each for red and blue, and 45 seconds for green. The image was taken in May, 2001.
