953x yikes

That sounds better than the best I have seen of Sat nebula. Seeing must have been a very quite moment to get that mag to show pinpoint central star.

That makes a great moment to remember.

Patience does pay off in this hobby. You may have to wait 5 minutes for a few seconds but it can pay off. Have had similar experience with M57 central star in an 18". A lot of things have to line up but it does happen.

953x in 12" well that is for sure a testament to one heck of a fine primary mirror as well. That is a keeper scope. Very kool.
