Really NICE!! Is your LXD75 unmodified apart from putting it on a pier (I heard that it was on a pier). I run across a lot of posts on other fora asking about the adequacy of the LADx5 for supporting astrophotography. When I see them, I think about your work.

Yes, the LXD75 is stock (unmodded). I did not even do a tune-up. Part of the reason it performed so well is that I guide by hand, which allows me to catch and correct tracking errors better. Oh yeh.. I did place it on a pier so that it was ready to go at a moments desire.
