OK Lads and Lassies :lol:
Here's another batch of 'Live' Screen Grabs from my latest NSN Broadcast.

Was stinking hot 34 degrees Celsius still at 2am!

Mallincam Xtreme, ED80 Refractor, 0.58x Focal Reducer, no filters, no post-processing.
Integration times are in the text on each Screen Grab.

Here are M82 w/SN2014J & M99 w/SN2014L (at 11 o'clock of central star) taken the other night with fair conditions (lots of reflection from snow). Images were captured off of the NSN broadcast. C8@f5 with an Idas P2 LPS filter taken with a Mallincam Xtreme X2.
