Here's mine from a NOVAC site in northern Virginia, taken on 4/6 and 4/14. Seeing was poor and transparency very good. Skyglow was approximately 20.3 mag/arcsec^2 (Bortle orange). Unfortunately, my new mount has some problems and tracking was a bit sketchy. This is my first real astrophoto with a telescope.

Telescope: AT65EDQ
Camera: Canon T3 (un-modified)
Mount: Sirius EQ-G
Guiding: 50mm guide scope and Orion SSAG
Exposures: 34x600s

Processed with DeepSkyStacker and Startools 1.3

Large on Astrobin.

Thanks and congrats to hoa101 on your "first real image with a telescope". Thats a great scope for imaging and you seem to be on your way.

For June lets try NGC 7000/Caldwell 20, the North America nebula.
