Still very new to astronomy, EAA and Cloudy Nights. I've had the OTA and mount for about 6 months and the ZWO ASI224MC arrived on Jan 31. Couldn't wait to try it out. The first image, M42, is from that night. Since then I have had several opportunities to (windless days) have a look. Very happy with the performance of the XLT150 reflector, but focus is challenging. I am pretty happy with the cg-4 and with sharpcap pro polar alignment is a snap. Anyway, thank you this community - lots of wisdom here, and encouragement to give this a try.
