after struggling for 7 months to get my an eq-6 version 3 that worked well enough for imaging (and having 3 new mounts under warranty each - unsatisfactory) here is my first "real" (as opposed to "test" image.
total of 2 hours and 25 minutes exposure (varying 4, 4 an 5 minute subs)
bias and dark subtracted, no flats - using Iris.
EQ-6 mount using EQmod, ED-80, Canon 350d, autoguided by 500mmfl 70mm refractor and Qguide.
Preliminary processing by me, final tart up by Maurice Valimberti.
