Thanks. 

I could proably have cropped out the vignetting, but I decided to leave them as it was more of a test run with new camera. They were also made a lot worse in the processing, the raw data was much smoother.

I think the orientation worked, didn't give it much thought, I havent really thought about what I wanted to convey, more or less shot from the hip. At first I wanted to have another composition, but later realised I couldn't rotate the camera as I would on a focuser, since I just took my plate adapter from my tripod and screwed it to the NEQ-6 instead of a dovetail.
