After a bit of trial and error I was finally able to get everything up and running at the weekend and attempted to capture some Ha data on NGC6188 (The Fighting Dragons Of Ara).

 

Unfortunately, not long after starting my imaging session the clouds rolled in and I had to pack up for the night.

 

It may not be much and, it's by no means anywhere near to a complete image but, with only 15 minutes of imaging time I was relatively happy to come away with my very first deep sky image.

 

Looking forward to capturing a decent amount of Ha, SII and OIII data on this target over the coming weeks.
