Here is an image of the Fetus Nebula with my ToUcam SC3 and my C8 SCT. The focal length was kind of long (the horizontal field of view is 8 arc minutes), but the tracking was good and the image survived.

Total of 45 minutes of exposure. Perhaps a bit short for f/10 but otherwise OK...

I have attached a mid sized thumbnail. Full size image and exposure / processing details are at:
