Here is my first night of serious imaging of M27. This is a center crop. It is a stack of 44 X 120 seconds, using 350D modded, Astronomik EOS Clipin CCD-CLS, SW BlkDia 120 ED, HEQ5Pro. Using BYE naturally. Stopped at 1am as I had things to do Saturday morning. The clouds were moving in and the Moon was entering into the haze. It was a good time to stop.
This is from my backyard about 1 1/2 miles West from the downtown core of Buffalo NY

Beautiful! And no, I don't just say that because I got nearly the same scope ;)
