 Really got to say I'm impressed with my QHY247C. I picked it up used, so was a little apprehensive.

Only 55 minutes of subs, some of which should have been rejected.  Was just testing different gain and

offset settings.  CGEM Mount is worthless, waiting for a new Losmandy G11.

Very nice image. It is always pleasing when a second hand purchase checks out well- I wish you clear skies moving forward. Anything new I buy usually contains clouds packed with the new gear!
