    Posting all 76 images in a single file seemed a bit much so I zipped  
    them into two files, images with even numbers in one and odd in the  
    other.  Each zip file is about 12 MB.
    Download only one zip file if all you want is every other image.   
    Download both if you want them all.
    Miscellaneous data:
    Telescope:  C-14 @ f/11 (3,900mm focal length)
    Camera:  ST-10XME binned 3x3 and cooled to -10, clear filter, unguided
    Date/Time:  2009 JAN 14, 0514 to 0547 UT
    No copyright but if you post any of the images please credit "Patrick  
    Carpe Noctem!
