Here's my first image with my new setup. I bought the scope(s) and new camera over the last month and "received" it for Xmas. Last night was the first chance to get out and image on a spectacularly clear night in the north east. Here's my present and also it's first image. I also ditched the Synscan hand controller and switched over to EQMOD/Stellarium for alignment and control so it was really like a whole new experience last night. I couldn't get the PHD2 guiding to work and didn't want to waste such a nice night messing around with the configuration in the COLD so I just went unguided with the new scope.
It's a William Optics Zenithstar 73 (73mm/430mm) with FLAT 73A (1:1 flattener). I also mounted a William Optics 50 guide scope (50mm/200mm) and ZWO ASI120mm-S camera for guiding.
