First light image using recently constructed permanent pier in Peralta Trails. Taken with a TEC-140 APO (980mm, f/7), a Televue 4x Powermate barlow and a Philips SPC900NC webcam. Produced by stacking 240 frames using Registax. The image as you see it here approximates the view through the telescope using a 7.4mm eyepiece and the 4x Powermate for a magnification of 529x.
