This was my first attempt with the Celestron SCT and Orions OAG and 6.3 FR

I managed to get 19 images at 6 minutes I had only one discarded image due to wind gust

I used my modified Canon 450D The moon was out at about 1/4
I used cds LPS filter

Larger Version

Hope you like it

Thanks for looking

Greg

Framed it perfect and pulled out some really nice details.

Nice image Greg. For that long of subs, I think you could get more out of it.

Did you do anything to get rid of glare coming off the bright star on the left? I image with the same scope and have strange glare or reflections when bright stars in in or near the FOV. Looks like you have a slight hint of it, but much much less drastic then mine.
