"This image of WR134 is the first from my new Skywatcher Esprit 120 telescope.  I spent 27 hours capturing data and almost that many processing the image to get it the way I wanted.  I have had a couple of telescopes with a similar focal length to the Esprit 120 but none have met my expectations for quality or results.  I'm happy to say that this scope is a keeper and that I'm super happy with the results so far.  "
