Well it isn't anything that the hubble people are going to worry about just yet, but by golly I got a picture through my new scope at prime focus. I have a lot of kinks to work out and ideas to try, but all in all I am pleased. It isn't exactly as sensitive as my st-237 was, but it is much higher resolution and single shot color. Should be fun to play with.

Is it just me, or does the blue response seem a little higher than most?

Enjoy or destroy...

Here is a shot of M13 same setup and similar exposure. Need to use eyepiece projection next time to get more magnification.
