Hi, this is the first light of this new 20" dobsonian scope. http://www.marcoguidihires.com/img/strumentazione/20130709.jpg It is a heavy version of the classical Obsession-like design (except it weighs 130 kg for 0.5 meter aperture). FL is 2000 mm (F/4).
Tracking is obtained with a StellarCat without DSC ("easy Tracking" function only). The camera was ASI 120.

Sweet! It's going to be fun to see your images when Jupiter and Mars get larger and higher in the sky.
