For the 15.95MB download (very zoom-able)
4 nights of good viewing in the past few weeks has yielded the veil nebula:
Deets: 400/2.8 lens, 15s ISO800 exposures, total integration time = 68 minutes.
A few details of the various parts:
Very impressive, @Andy Resnick!
Ok, now I'm posting a long video here (1 hour 40 minutes), but it is worth watching for those who are interested in astronomy/astrophysics and particularly gravitational waves:

I love that shot, the zoomed in telephoto images are great, I tried posting that one a bit ago but got an error message that said file to large, you must know a trick I haven't learned yet.
I clicked with the right mouse button over the photo on the NASA page and then selected "copy image location". After that I pasted the copied image location into the image url box that appears when you click the button "image" in the PhysicsForums post toolbar... (my computer runs Windows as OS and Firefox as browser)...
I saw a similar image yesterday:
At first, I thought it was some silly photoshop type thing.
But then, I discovered, that it was real.
ps. I'm pretty sure that mom or dad had some hand in this, as the headline said it was a couple of kids, aged 9 & 11, that were responsible for this experiment.
Mom or dad get a passing grade as well as the kids.
That must be Banks lake to the left of cat.
From, http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/ I found several "postworthy" images.
A few recent images taken during vacation:
Andromeda galaxy taken with 50mm lens (whole frame, then 1:1 crop). 90 4s images (I don't lug my tracking mount to the beach!)
And a stitched panorama (15/2.8 lens) of the entire sky visible from the deck: 15 stacks, each 50 x 10s. First is fisheye projection, next is equirectangular projection, then some 1:1 crops, one of a few Messier objects near the horizon, the next of a region in Cygnus near zenith, and the last one is of Andromeda. The original images are about 15k x 15k pixels...

I think I 'got' this one as well:
I smell a homework problem.... my location was Latitude: 35.228824 | Longitude: -75.626187 (sea level), where was Fritz?
My posting seems to be glitching
Here is a nice one from down APOD August 16th
