Here are a couple shots that I collected during the Okie-Tex star party a couple weeks ago. The NGC 891 shot is about 8 hours of data and includes some taken in October 2020. The NGC 7331 is only about 3 hours total and could definitely use some additional frames to smooth things out. All taken with an 8" Edge HD at prime focus f/10 with a QSI 683.
This was my first outing with the Moonlite CHL 2.5 crayford focuser (after abandoning the motorized primary mirror focusing), and I was very pleased with the performance and improvements to autofocus stability. It definitely makes the scope a bit tail-heavy though!
(10 min frames, LRGB all bin 1x1)
