VERY Nice!!! :)

What did you capture the image with? A CCD camera mounted in the telescope eye-piece, or a SLR (digital or otherwise) mounted on the telescope?

It was a Nikon D40 camera, attached using a T-mount adapter and Zhumell lens ring for the camera. I am looking into the Meade Deep Sky Imager II color unit, and use that instead of the Nikon (it's a color CCD unit that also attached to the telescope) although it can only take images of around 800x600. There's a limit on how high up an object can be before the camera gets in the way, but for a lot of targets that shouldn't be much of a problem.
