This was taken at Prairie Skies Star Party last weekend while I was waiting for another object to rise.

AP140 F7.5 Prototype
Mach1 GTO mount (oh what a difference a good mount makes smile )
ST-8E camera, 20 x 180 seconds

Comments appreciated,
Robert

Hi Robert,

that's a fine image, as a good friend said, the mount is essential.
You also have good optics, so...
I made a similar image with the same camera a few years ago with poor results, I should come back to this object.
Thanks for sharing,
regards,

Gilles
