Description

This was mostly a test of my new moonlite focuser, but I was pleased at how well the O3 wings came out in just 9x600s. The 3 screw compression ring system _seems_ to have solved my tilt problem, though you can't really tell in this shot because the stars here are an overlay of older RGB data. :-)
