Here is my first DSO with the Tak FSQ106/D60 combination its of M45. The scope was piggybacked on an 12" LX200 with no auto guiding done. Its 8-360sec exposures at ISO 400, 10 darks averaged and subtracted from each pic and combined using AA. Then some processing

Pushing the limit of the LX200 mount I was pleasantly surprised when I could get 6min exposures with no auto guiding, next time out I'll see how much longer I can go. I know this LX200 has been modified by Doc. G so who knows
what he did (but Its working great)Thanks Doc!

Beautiful. When you say no autoguiding, I'm assuming you at least did some manual guiding through the LX?
