Having just 'belt-modded' and 'fettled the worms' of my HEQ5PRO I had thirty minutes of 'playtime' last night.

Got a quick polar alignment, PHD2 calibration, and very short PHD2 guiding asistant run.

Tried this target just to see if the alignment/belt mod/guiding was OK.

ED80 DS PRO with 0.85 reducer/FF, Canon 450D (modified). Bortle 4.

Only 4 x 300 seconds... edited (abused) in PI.50328620_StephansQuintet12thSeptsmallfile.thumb.jpg.093acd11d2057ff020bc8c8c48c98480.jpg

I've seen much, much better images, but more importantly this one is mine (and that is what it's all about!)

Now I've found it, definitely somewhere I'll return to and look for improvement.
