Thanks guys.

Saturn5 - it was nice being able to image the object and still watch it through the guidescope. I was surprised that the Skylux picked out and althought it was faint it wa defo there.

Marked improvement for a "little play" - well done. That vignetting can be tempered a bit with some flat frames. You'll get a mroe even background then.
