It was a bit misty last night (24-01-2017) but decided it was worth a go with my quick to set up Canon 600D DSLR on the Star Adventurer - 18-55mm EOS lens at about f=45mm . 15x 4min lights at ISO800, 5xdarks and 20xflats .  4mins exposure seemed to push the Star-Adventurer to its limit as there was some star trailing that I removed in FITS Work freeware. Could be my short-comings in Polaris alignment?  Anyway I reckon you can see M36, M37, M38 and IC405 without too much trouble.
