Looking like the USB port in my EQ6 R pro went out, so no guiding, mount control dithering plate solving etc. Figured I would attempt to salvage something,

 

Its not much. Its not really even a start but wanted something after waiting so long for a clear night. 30x60sec subs. No calibration frames at all. Thought about just trashing the data but it was more or less just test data anyway, mostly to see what the L-Extreme filter was like (unsurprising, m42 was still bright!) and to see if spacing was good with the flattener reducer. Think there might be a little bit of tilt and whack spacing? And see what an image from the hard to mount for balance AT80EDT.

 

asi533mc pro. Think I got the background a bit too dark.

Whoa... Orion fits like that in the frame with that scope and the 533?

 

I have the same specs and didn't even consider checking out Orion, I thought it wouldn't fit. I must've messed up something in Stellarium when I was framing up objects. Very cool, I need to shoot this too.

It barely fit and if I got the extended nebulosity, it probably wouldn't. The .8x reducer knocks the focal length down to about 384mm. Now that I think if it, I probably could have rotated the camera a little bit :)
