UPS delivered my new RASA at 6:00 and it was on the mount by 7:30. This was a quick first light also to beat the clouds. Did not get a chance to get it all set up properly, check collimation, get the wires run properly , no dew shied and shooting with an almost full 1st quarter moon!..but 60- 30 second exposures and this is the result....I think I'm gonna like it!!!!
