That’s a decent 253, given the focal length

Thanks for the feedback, probably redo later to get some details in the galaxy if I can

And for the record Every 30seconds of image at f2.2 is equivalent to 7 minutes of image in a f7 telescope, so this image is equivalent to 13.5 hours taken on a conventional scope

Maaaate, with that amazing scope under good dark skies you should'a hit it for a long one and hey, you might have revealed my special little baby NGC253-dw2

That scope has a lot of potential....don't get sick of it and sell it!

no fear F2.2 will live on, i am thinking of f2.0 for the doghouse as the 8" i can set autofocus without the need for focus locks. i will email you the original if you wish to have a play?

I should have had a closer look at that beast David. That's a great image for very little time. The future looks promising if you can suck down that much data in an hr.
