One thing is evident - I need some decent processing software. Currently using demos of everything :)

great first effort, the wide field is very nice, the close up showing alittle star trails but for a first effort you should be very chuffed

Cheers fellas :)

My run tonight was widefield M52 and the Bubble nebula.

Unfortunately I framed 4CAS (my point of reference) wrongly and ended up with my intended targets off the chip.

Should have shot a test sub. I won't make that mistake again :angry:

Gutted because I was lucky to get the run finished just before the clouds invaded.
