Sharpstar/SX Exview 5 sec guide image

I've been looking for a good quality guidescope that could double as an imaging scope but only around finderscope length (200mm +/-). I bought the Sharpstar a few weeks ago with that in mind. I tried it out the other night on the Luna eclipse teamed with a Canon 60D. I was happy with the impromptu imaging with it and it showed potential. Tonight I've teamed it with my SX Exview autoguider. and this is a dark subracted 5 sec image.
