Thanks Guys! :)

I used a 2X Big Barlow from Teleview on both images. The Firecapture software takes into
consideration the crop area and calculates the equivalent focal length based on the crop.

Here is my setup. I have had the telescope for a number of years but I just recently purchased the Starlock and LX850 EQM which fit on my existing tripod.
