All images except the double cluster were taken with the MVAS Stellacam, through Bob Niemeyer's 14" Celestron telescope, at the Bruneau Dunes Observatory. The double cluster shot was taken through Rick Widmer's zoom lens, mounted on the Herrett Telescope. The video images were captured with Rick's HP capture device and SnappySoft video capture software. The images were extracted with Adobe Premier, and converted from .gif to .png with Paint Shop Pro. No other processing has been done.
