Grabbed a quick hour Thursday night after work, quickly put the mount and scope up. I was a bit off with the alignment and it was windy so the odds were against me for imaging..

Managed to get this, the only usefull frame out of abot 10....

Thanks guys.

Although I enjoy using the webcam for planetary stuff, I prefer the DSLR deepsky stuff....Bit weird, but I find it easier than the Toucam!!

It's nice that people are starting to develope their imaging skills through this forum, if it wasn't for this place i'd of given up ages ago.
