Seriously, while you really can't compare imaging times between such vastly different rigs under such vastly different skies...as I have said before, the only reason I don't take more exposure time (most of the time) is cause I am not automated and I am probably a little lazy Having said that, I do agree my lackey micro focal length NGC 1398 could do with some more exposure

Go for it, the more fast Newtonians out there the more we can take it to the old fashioned long focal length tribe (NB. that was a harmless little joke all you long focal length folk).
