Was a good night at the park, very chilly and was great to get the old star hopping skills going and visually catch some galaxies with the Society 12 inch, a damm nice scope. Good detail in the coalsack too

One minute subs is good ... How did you polar align?
I just plonked it roughly south and got 30 sec images easily but at 18 mm focal length
At 55 mm I had to do a drift align
Or do you have the polar scope?

i have a polar scope

yeah it was good to muck about - need a dew strap to point vertical though ;)

Great shot Dave
Love Omega Centauri shining brightly there on the edge of the FOV and the Jewel Box is quite bright too.
