All of the pictures were taken with an SBIG ST7 CCD camera mounted on an alt-azimuth f6.3 - 8" Meade LX200 telescope. They were all taken in the back yard - <12 miles from San Francisco - limiting visual magnitude 3, and lousy seeing most of the time.

Most of the images used the Meade field de-rotator, and none were flat fielded.
