I know this needs more work and more exposure time, but I've had this scope for three weeks now and just had to try it out tonight (Thursday). (Oh and sorry about all the lousy skies for the last three weeks!) :o

Thanks for the comments Rick and Mo! I had more than my fair share of problems being use to imaging with the ED80 and guiding with a 6 inch reflector. Imaging with the reflector is easy, but trying to guide with an ED80 at less focal length and a whole lot less light gathering ability, is tough in poor skies. Plus the full Moon Thursday night forced short exposures. I guess I should be happy with what I did all things considering.
