The forces of rotation caused red hot masses of stones to be torn away from the Earth and to be thrown into the ether, and this is the origin of the stars.

Rising Moon

The Moon was rising in the East and the color was yellow-orange-red as it appeared thru the Earths atmosphere.  I took very short iamges, 30  0.001 sec exposures each R,G,B and 30 0.001 sec clear, and 30 0.003 Ha filter combined.  Strange.  Orion 80ED on CGEM mount.

Joe, nice color combined image of M27.   Let's see, what is the going rate for imaging at darker sites?  Hmmmm.
