First post on SGL so hello everyone and thanks for all your posts. They have helped me greatly to hit the ground running with my new hobby!
This is my first ever DS image taken on 4th night out with my scope. I spent the first 3 sessions practising setting up, polar aligning and imaging moon etc. Last night I nearly never ventured out because of the moon and cloudy forecast but so glad I did! When aligning my finderscope I stumbled upon M45 and decided to give it a bash. Managed around 40subs before clouds rolled in and moon came up but very chuffed with my first result!
Criticisms and advice more than welcome
