Merlin_Four, looks like you and I have the same exact setup. Although I don't have BYEOS as I don't have the correct cable. Didn't see any point in investing in the software with the lack of live view. Do you find BYEOS to be helpful with focusing since you can view on a larger screen?

EDIT: Also, while you may not have the proper cable to do a BULB exposure, there are many preset exposure lengths built into the camera that BYE can choose from. Mine go all the way up to 30", yours may too. So you can likely do up to 30 second exposures with BYE without having to get the special cable.

May I know if you have used any filter ? It seems that your achromatic refractor is well corrected.

Thanks, rodnocjolly. I'm not using a refractor, it's a 6" reflector. No filters used in any of my images. 2" t-ring and adapter so I'm not limited my the 1.25" FOV.
Mistery solved ...
Celestron uses almost the same name for two different product:
Celestron Omni XLT 150R 150mm refractor
Celestron Omni 150XLT - 150/750mm
Thank you for your answer and again my compliment.
