If this image is what average seeing brings, I can only imagine what excellent seeing would enable you to accomplish where you are.

Looks like your image might need relabeled regarding polar orientation? I only noticed because your images are usually "upside down" South-up. lol.gif Great detail regardless, especially for the seeing conditions! Do you use a diagonal while imaging or do any axis inversions while capturing the data or during processing? I'm not too familiar with the Mewlon 250. I know it's not ideal with the small light loss, but I've used a diagonal and invert the appropriate axis with my SCT while imaging to get the North-up orientation to match what's visible from my location in simulation software such as Stellarium and Starry Night. This lets me do quick changes between the camera and an eyepiece when aligning or hunting for the next target.

Opps! In my hurry I forgot to replace the north up icon with the South up icon. shocked.gif That happens sometime because I submit to both professional astronomers who want north up and ALPO who wants south up. Rack that up to another senior moment. lol.gif

Well hey, I had no idea the ALPO had a preference for the South-up orientation, so you taught this young lad something new today! Worked out for me rather nicely! grin.gif
