It's been a long time in the making to start generating images with a widefield rig, but I'm finally there. Unfortunately, we only got about 1 hour of clear skies during the entire Winter Star Party and this was the extent of my output. That being said, we've had clear skies at home and lots of projects are in the making now!

I'll start sharing more info on the rig I'm building in the near future, but this it is exciting to see what is possible in very limited integration time :)
