This isn't ready for pic of the day, but this is my best pic ever.  Everything went great: setup, guiding, time on target.  Also, the low ISO really solved so many problems that I always had in processing.  Finally, this is heavly cropped, and it still came out good.  With that said, still want to learn and get better so feedback is welcome.  

 

Great news, wife signed off on the purchase of an EQ-6... waiting for its arrival.
