Ta H..... First "camera" light was rather boring..an unguided 10 second exposure of Fomalhaut...as a test for any stray reflections etc.

The attached image (un-cropped 16803 field) shows it is all well behaved. We had a "southerly buster" blow through Sydney last night...i.e major fuzz-ball seeing.

Hence I wasn't too fussed about the stellar footprints, but, the lack of tell-tale bloat on dim stars or spikes around Fomalhaut itself speaks volumes on the correction and smoothness of the optics.
