The pictures were made at the prime focus of a 62cm f:8 Ritchey-Cr=E9tien-telescope owned by the Ferrovia Monte Generoso SA. The CCD is a Hi-SIS33, unfiltered. The black and white picture is a result of a median of five-2 seconds pictures. The image was processed with a gradient filter and logarithmed. The false colour picture is a result of a median of five-5 seconds exposures. The processing technique is the same used in the other photo. Stefano Sposetti
