This is my best yet.  Still not fantastic but better than previous imaging efforts for me.  Each image is as described in my previous post from this evening.

I appreciate the comments but at best I'd say these are average compared to some of the amazing work on display in this forum.  I do continue to get better than that's most important from where I sit.  My IR Pass filter showed up today which hopefully will assist in collimating my scope more accurately.  I'm still fighting a bit of astigmatism near focus that I can't seem to pin down.  You can clearly see it as you move through focus and it's limiting the resolution I'm getting, even when seeing cooperates.
