Summer's well on its way so we've had a few really gorgeous nights during the past week! While observing dwarf novae in the Large Magellanic Cloud last night, Petri & Fred snagged a set of images through 3 of the Sloan filters (u, g & r). Combining these has produced one of SALT's most beautiful colour-composite images to date. The combination of 1" seeing & a freshly stacked primary shows what the telescope's capable of under good conditions. If only Darragh could see this kind of image quality!
