Used my Canon 6D + peltier cooled box and surprised this came out well considering the moon was out last night and my skies were only mag 20.5! The CEM25p was guiding at 0.7-0.9" RMS... ridiculous for such a cheap mount. My image scale is 4" and I dithered every 4th frame so I could drizzle and get some detail back.

Was great to be under the stars again : )
