I had to go for one more after being out in the cold for a couple of hours. This is from 5 shots at ISO 1600 of 3.5 minutes duration with the Canon 20da. The scope was used at prime focus of f/4.5.

Good shootin' Jim!! That bucket sure soaks the chip.

Just how cold was it? And you're guiding this manually?

Nice image Jim! Do you use a coma corrector?

No coma corrector is used, the optics have to be perfectly aligned or that is all you see -little comets all over !
