My final image taken at Davey T's place over the weekend.

Needs bags more data, but it was my last night, my original target (cone) had disappeared behind the house and it was a clear sky not to be wasted, stopped imaging at 5am!!!  Will try to add more data at a later date.

Luminance 600 x 12
Ha 600 x 4
RGB total of 40mins in 150sec subs binned x 2
Needs a lot more data, but ran out of time at this location and it was 5am in the morning.  But at least it is better than my previous attempt at this target.
Total imaging time 3 hours 17 minutes

Atik428EX, ED80 and HEQ5

This was the full FOV with the smaller camera I have an my ED80, so no I didn't and didn't know there was one there.  The other scope and camera I had set up on the rig was a MUCH bigger FOV which I was using for the big objects that weekend, and thought this target too small for that combination.

Great result Carole. This has given me ideas, it may be my first light target for when I get the ODK into commission. It should be riding high be then.
