Kev,
Looks like the new Astro Cam and Guiding is a winner!
One minute subs... you’ve left us in your wake back here from the beginners pool.
Power to you!

Thanks Anthony! My DSLR is gathering dust... Actually the DSLR will make a good landscape IR camera.

Thanks Ross! Looks like some weather is on the way. Hope it clears after the full moon goes.

Thanks Rodney. My new LRGB filters arrived today so this will be the last shot using visual RGB filters.

Thanks Lewis and Bo. As long as the HEQ5 is balanced it seems to be okay.

That's a lovey 253 Kevin.
You've taken to your new camera like a duck to water.
