The image above comes from the sigma clipping combination of 20, 120-second unfiltered exposures, taken with the ARTEC250+Paramount ME+C3Pro61000EC robotic unit available as part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility in Manciano, Italy. The telescope tracked the object while imaging, which was less than 20 deg. above the Western horizon. Twilight.
