Looks like a very good start to me! I have yet to capture my first DSO or even a really good planitary picture! lol.

What equipment/timings did you use?

Thanks Brian for the comment.

I used my CPC925, Canon EOS 5D Mk 2 without focal reducer but with a light polution filter. Guided by Synguider with a ST80, however I am still getting to grips with the Synguider!

Thats a really nice photo. I'm getting a 5" reflector in a few days. What telescope did you use? Also you said you used a LPR filiter. How is it working for you/do you live near a city that you need it?

As per the thread above I used the CPC925 without focal reducer and an unmodified Canon EOS 5D Mark II. The LPR is a Astronomik CLS which as far as I know are quite aggressive, however as I do not live in a city (my location is semi-rural / village but with cities to the north and south) it may be a bit over the top, but unless I spend another £100+ to get something more subtle I will not know what is the best solution.
