Nothing special here. NGC2264/XMas Tree Cluster/Nebula - just a test of the Orion triplet. 3x8 mins LRGB each, plus darks. -20C on the Parsec 8300M, guiding was average to below average. Focus is a little soft, as I spent all of 2 minutes getting focus, and I didn't refocus between filters. Also, the camera was *not* square/orthogonal to the scope, I didn't notice until after the imaging run.

Hey Jeff, not bad for a test run. Not bad at all.

Thanks, nothing special really. I think I'm going to upgrade the focuser on this scope to a motorized one. And the next time I'm out, longer/more exposures, I want to see what this scope can do. And I need to get to someplace much darker.
