With the weather we have been having all year here, I am not starting any more faint target (and abandoning it). Instead I just picked a bright target to continue testing the focuser that can be completed in 1-2 days.

This is better looking (IMO) with Sulphur/Hydrogen Alpha/Oxygen III mapping with its a blue-gold look but
I dont have a sulphur filter for this camera so this is a bicolor (Ha/OIII) mapped image with RGB stars.
