I was able to shoot this right after I got the CGEPro up and running. This was taken with the new Astronomy Technologies 8" RC and a 2" AT Field Flattener. This is a total of 4 hours worth of 10 minute subs. Comments welcomed :)

Take some flats to get rid of your dust bunnies there. (Black blobs) I would also give it a real good clean. Is that on your sensor?

Sensational image. The new AT RC is similar to the GSO ones released recently? Seeing some very nice images around with those, though they all seem to be using a flattener.

Stunning image. How are you finding the CGE Pro? Was that 10 minutes unguided?
Theres another faint fuzzy top right. NGC5198? If so thats Mag 13.
