This was my first quick light with my WO Star71-II fairly happy with it, did not use flats and only spent 20 minutes or so on post processing. just wanted to get some quick idea what the scopes capable of while im busy building my observatory. pretty happy with it so far minus some star distortion I need to try to work out.
