Hi Guys -

This is my 3rd attempt at imaging M57 with my Toucam webcam. This is 30 X 15 sec. images stacked. Taken with an 8" LX-200 in alt-az mode (no wedge.)

Still have a ways to go, but I am having fun getting there!

Image looks very good. The only hassle seems to be the alt-az platform; you are getting quite a bit of trailing.
