thanks, my first attempt at this galaxy. shame my stars are not rounder, but i hoped no one sees as they look at the amazing Galaxy!  I cant use guiding at the moment am waiting for some parts to enable me to do that.

very nice considering no guiding being used, i bet you can`t wait to get guiding now to really see what your setup can do

Absolutely. The item I'm waiting for is an adapter to connect the finder scope to a zwo planetary camera for auto guiding. But it's on back order till mid june at the earliest
