Do you have a way of adjusting the collimation of the scope remotely? It looks like something is up, judging by the stars in the upper left region of the image.

I've never looked into what it takes to have a remote setup, but how would you handle something like a collimation issue, or something else where someone had to be on site to fix it? Are there local people in NM-Skies that you can pay or contract to do work like that?

Thanks, every time I pull it up in PS I'm still not happy!
Your quote indicates a problem. We APers seem locked on a self-destructive, ever-escalating road of disatisfaction and hyper-self criticism.
Both your Horses were excellent. I did not notice the out of round stars in the upper left corner in the first one but am glad to see you were able to correct it by discarding a few "bad" subs. The difference in the two images that is most significant to my eye is that the second has star colour while the first has only white stars.
Both are great IMO and only astro-geeks would notice anything wrong with either of them.
I am curious about the double diffraction spike from Alnitak though? I know the AGO does not have a double-vaned spider.
