Description

This is my first image exclusively run on my new hypertuned CGEM mount after working out all the kinks, PEC training, polar alignment etc. It gives me a chance to compare back to an earlier M33 to see where I've made improvements. Couple changes from the last one, New mount of course, the CLS-CCD filter. I was able to obtain more signal i believe, but with less integration time and fewer subs.

I'll be picking up an autoguider package next to spring to the next level!
