Thanks Pete, it looks fabulous. Mmmmmm love white. :D Northgroup 127mm with Moonlight focuser and robofocus (yet to get going). Of course its a full moon but glorious outside, so the only option ... yep Omega Centauri :D

Unfortunately Dave we've had a bit of dew over the past few nights so I'm being a bit precious. :D Besides it makes it look longer :whistle: :D I just have to remember though that it is a LOT longer than the VC200 so no more going 1.5 hrs hours past meridian flip when shooting southwards. :doh:

Nice new Bazooka.

I have my version of your bazooka mounted on the same mount as my VC200L side by side. The best of both worlds.;)

Nice but another question: why is the picture so grainy ? Did you use ISO 25k or 50k ?

I'm still thinking weather to put the 200 back up there as well. But I didn't want to seem to be greedy imaging through half a dozen scopes at once. ;)
It was taken with my Canon Powershot SX120 @ ISO3200 @ f/5 at the maximum 15sec exposure. Unfortunately while its a great little daytime use camera it does lack a bit at night.
