Very nice! Your guiding is really good for that focal length.

Very nice, some of the best I've seen with the C6. How's your vignetting with this setup? I've been trying to use a DSLR with the C6 and the vignetting is very extreme.

Thanks Elmiko

Thanks Mitchell, Indeed Ive noticed that vignetting is very noticeable with my Canon 70D (APS-C Sensot).  But with the smaller sensor ASI183MC-Pro I can't see any vignetting at all. I've attached a flat frame taken with the Celestron C6 & f/.63 reducer and the ASI183MC-Pro camera and a flat frame taken with my Celestron C6 & f/.63 reducer Canon 70D.
