This beautiful IC 2177 image was submitted to us by Bill Clugston. He imaged this in February of this year from Tucson, Arizona. To "Own the Night" Bill used his Stellarvue SV80T. We are thankful and proud Bill has allowed us to share with the Stellarvue family. Bill mentioned it was his first time transporting all his imaging gear on an airline before setting up in Tucson.
