In the haze of clear nights I've overlooked this shot from last Saturday week ago.
Just over 3 hours worth, Canon 60D @ ISO800, 21x8min. Stacked DSS (darks & flats)and post processing in PSCS3. These are large images and it takes a bit to downsize them and maintain some quality, so I've included a full size crop from around Eta itself.
She's a pretty sweet camera too Justin, and plenty of hours pays off too
Live view I love, flip out screen is to die for. If for no other reason I'd buy this camera again for the flip out screen. You know how good they are from your little canon with the flip out screen, but on a DSLR it takes it to a whole new level. In fact you don't have to get level any more, or crouched, or kneeling or bent over like a pretzel to look at the screen. Its bliss

That was with my Vixen VC200L Simon, but with the .63 FR on it.
In the full image there's a bit of curvature in the left hand side, but the camera may not have been square on. The seeing wasn't good on the night and I was having trouble getting my guiding happening. I haven't used a DSLR attached to a scope on a mount for probably the better part of two years It was a bit of a comedy of errors for the night.
That should work fine JJJ, I used a pocket TV using the AV-out on my 300D a few years back, it really helped. Ofcourse with the 300D I still didn't have the 5x and 10x zoom that Liveview has, tho loving the flip and zoom on the 60Da
I tellya Dave she's a sweet little camera. I really like it. And it does a pretty good job, just a bit of strange truncating of the colour channels in the tiffs that come into PS that has me scratching my head a bit.
I must admit though that coming back down to guidescope and imaging scope after using OAG for a while, was a real challenge let me tell you I kept scratching my head looking at the setup going "What the hell am I supposed to do next? " It was pretty frustrating. One night last week I spent from 6 pm to 9:30pm and didn't fire a successful shot. You know ....one of those nights
