Feel like I am always workig out issues with equipment :crazy: I waited a long time for a new adapter and when I got it I put everything together fast and started imaging. My guiding was terrible, but hurray for CCDstack!

About 4 hours of data, 40 minutes of short exposures for the core.

Nice, Jim. Is this from home? We were probably shooting at the same spot from the same spot.

Well, I'll link it here. I was focused on NGC 1977, which I have always thought of as the Running Bigfoot Nebula.

Running Bigfoot Nebula

It was wonderful weather. I have a bit of star bloat in mine from the ED optics, but otherwise I think it worked out OK. I've been having trouble keeping my monitor calibrated, though, so who knows what you will see. I shot as the nebula passed through the meridian on the 16th and 17th. Is that when yours was taken?

Looks great Val!

Yes, I took mine on the 17th, 19th and 20th.
