So this is my longest exposure set yet, 68 subs at 300 seconds each for a total of 5.6 hours total exposure time. Captured from my backyard over two nights. 

 

Equipment:

Meade 6000 series 130mm APO refractor with 0.8x reducer/flattener

QHY128C-Pro OSC camera (Gain 2200, Offset 60)

SBIG ST-i guider looking through a 60mm guide scope

CEM60 mount

Sequence Generator Pro

PHD2

 

NGC6914 reflection nebula and surrounding nebulosity in Cygnus. Bright star in the corner is Sadr

 

NGC6914 68x300sec Int

 

Still got some corrections to make on backfocus, but overall reasonably happy.
