Hi all.

The autoguider is finally talking to the LX200 so after an observing run when I still had some darkness left I decided to have some fun.

Here is a 5 minute image of NGC 6946. A large, face-on spiral galaxy on the Cepheus-Cygnus border.

Taken with an 8" f/10 and an ST-8, binned 2x2.

Nice image; your guiding and your technique is very good. Now take about a half-dozen of these and combinme them, and you'll get some impressive details!
