I've been taking part in the HOYS (formerly HOYS-CAPS) programme, monitoring young star formation. The picture is a stack of all my 30 calibrated Red images uploaded to the project over a 6 month period. Each is a stack of 3x180s subs. This has then been image processed - so no science left in it! Quite a few Herbig-Haro objects visible in there too.

The latest paper has been published which names as co-authors all the amateurs (including descriptions of equipment an affiliations) involved in providing observations.
