Hi Sam,

This is fantastic - a far better image than I've managed to achieved with my Atik Titan camera and Nextar 8SE, despite that being a cooled camera. Lots of short subs appear to be the way to go on that kind of mount. Did you use any dark frames?

holy smokes. Are you saying 200 x 9 seconds exposures or 9 minutes? I don't know how you guys pull this off unless you are using another autoguider camera. I won't be able to autoguide the asi120mm for a while now that it is my new guide cam lol. This image blows away my 480 second exposures of m51 with my full spectrum dslr.
