Converted my big Dob to a C8/CGE/Mallincam Jr Pro setup. Taken from my driveway in the outer suburbs of Minneapolis. The pic is more saturated than the actual image was, my phone doesn't do it justice. I had a tear in my eye.

Obviously a great first light, perfect image scale for M51. It must have looked great. Congrats on the setup.

I was nervous about selling my dob, but so far no regrets.
