Bam: First Real Night Out
      #6500387 - 05/01/14 02:09 PM Attachment (16 downloads)

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.

Excellent 1st light with your new MC Jr. Pro!! The detail in M51 is fantastic.

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