That's awesome, Chris! Thank you for sharing - I may never clap my own eyes on the Horsehead, but it's truly inspiring to see what modest gear - and patience and skill - can tease out of the skies!

Thanks so much, guys! I was going to go out again tonight because it was again clear as can be, but the wind had picked up and the forecast was for temps in the 20's by 8 pm.

The 80ED is the imaging scope. I'm using the Astro-Tech as a guide scope.

That is just outstanding! I hope you don't mind but your Horsehead Nebula image just became my new MacBook Pro's wallpaper.

Thanks. And keep feeding us images like that!

Wait. Am I seeing that right?

Chris are you getting images/views like that with an 80mm scope that's in your sig?
