C11 - Hyperstar - ASI174mm - LP filter - Losmandy G11 - Gemini2 goto. 

Been awhile since I toured, quick 4 star West model 5 star East model. Started out looking for comet, plugged live ra/dec coordinates in and slewed.  Sure enough there was a comet moving along.  Next was Orion, Horsehead, Bodes, NGC 2403 & NGC 2903.  Also viewed moon plus few open clusters, enjoyable gremlin free tour.  Some images below, 30 frame stacks of 15 sec to 30 sec subs unguided.

Fantastic captures, lovely detail and nice sharp stars, that’s a lovely setup. The comet is superb. 

What live imaging software do you use (sorry if I’ve asked you before)?
