The last of my first light images. I cheated by not focusing per filter but ok. :) I was completely surprised how well this turned out with SGM 19.8 sky and the moon impeding as well.

This is technically only 75 minutes of data but created a super luminance which means, IMHO anyway, that it is 2 hours worth of data. I'm impressed considering the situation and I can't wait to see what this combo can do in dark skies!
