Perseid meteors from Beech Fork Lake State Park in WV. 10 meteor frames carefully aligned over a stack of 10 Milky Way images taken after the gibbous Moon had set. Many light pollution and moon gradients were present in the images.

This was my first night with the iOptron Skyguider Pro and I am most impressed with guiding and accuracy of polar scope. Very little field rotation was noted over the course of the 4 hour imaging session. I am encouraged to try the mount with more focal length and even some filtered DSLR images.
