Managed to get first light on my newly acquired WO Redcat at the weekend. It's such a nice little scope to use :) This was captured over friday and saturday night from my bortle 8 garden with an approx. 70% moon parked next door to Auriga. There were some really strong gradients to remove, plus I couldn't really push the data any further to bring out more of the finer detail without killing the image with noise.

Great image!  Auriga is one of my favourite constellations, particularly through binoculars.   

Thank you, yeah it certainly has a lot going for it :)
