My first photo with the autoguider ... what a difference this makes!

Orion was already fairly low (Canon EOS 6D with ISO 1250), unfortunately, and getting both Running Man and the Great Orion Nebula into field of view without severe vignetting by the reducer (it is not perfectly suited for full frame) was a little challenge.

Processing: DSS, GIMP, finishing touches with Snapseed.
