Just getting started with SGP, it's a bit of an involved setup and tuning process, but I have to say I love how well it centers the object!

 

Also got the STC Duo Narrowband filter, using it with a modified D5300 and it's like a super-LPF for emission nebulas!

 

This is uncropped 4x4min pretty close to a full moon from a red zone, SGP centers M27 perfectly!

This was what I used to be happy with when I was just centering by trial and error, 8x2.5min also with lots of moonlight

Awesome shot! Is this the clip in filter or the 2" version? I am trying to do some research on this filter series and want to know what people's impressions are.

 

Seriously beautiful shot. What scope were you using?
