  Abstract: We have demonstrated that research images from the BYU West Mountain Observatory can often be combined to produce images that are suitable for classroom use. This process can usually be completed with little or no effort being made to secure additional image data after the completion of a research project. Results will be shown for images processed from frames obtained for science investigations and compared with images where the data were obtained specifically to produce an instructional image. We also present two amimations where the data frames are from nightly monitoring projects. Images can be previewed at the website in the abstract footnote.
