Hercules star portrait 
The constellations Hercules (standing on his head at the bottom, and Lyra at the top.  Click here or on the pic above for the full 1544 x 2108 jpeg.  View it full size and scroll through it!  ONLY 2Mb!!!.
This one is smaller because I had to crop the building and tree out of my very light polluter back yard.  I have heavily saturated this one to reveal the details below.

Tech Specs for the jpeg:  75 frames of 15 seconds at ISO 200.  Stacked with DeepSkyStacker.

The Delta Lyrae Cluster.  The Big star here is actually red, which saturates to white easier than blue does.  The blue glow above the blue star and right of the big star, is probably two or three of the largest of the 15 stars that surround this pair.  It really is quite a nice cluster through a good scope.

The Delta Lyrae Cluster.  Second attempt, with a much nicer shot
