I have an image of the IC1805 area as well as a close up of the brighter central area. I have attached a thumbnail of the wider field image. Full size images and exposure / processing details can be seen at:

Both images are on this page. Both were taken with the ToUcam SC3/Raw Camera. The wide field was using my Megrez II at f/2.6 and the narrow field shot was taken with the C8 at f/2.8. The narrow field shot was taken from my light polluted residence in the city (thank heavens for HAlpha filters). Total exposure time on each image was about 50 minutes.

How are you getting f2.8 out of the C8?
