    Many thanks for this! My son wants to get our telescope (a fraction of this resolution) out again.

    Jim: I would love to see how Friedman squeezes such amazing photos out of a backyard ensemble in the middle of a big city. These photos were magnificent.

    I would, too. The residual light from the DFW metroplex hides so much from our eyes and small scope.
