I tried a go at this a while ago and I didn't like how it came out. I grabbed some more frames of this target last month and had another go at it. Let me know what you all think. I hope you all enjoy!!

Thanks for looking,

Jimmy

Ok ... that's it. How much is it per month for a NMSkies pier? Argh!

$1000/month if you provide everything, apparently. Mount required is PME or GT. I suspect a PMX would also do..

$1600/month if NMSkies provides the mount (PME or GT).

Thanks everyone!!! NMSkies is really nice. The skies have been pretty good this winter. Lots of nights to image. I'm using a PMX but AP mounts will work too.

I am going to have to give them a call because that price is not too bad considering what I have to deal with in MN.

Brilliant image and keep up the great work, Jimmy. I'm very envious (in a good way of course).
