Description

We have been having great fall weather here in eastern Missouri! I have never seriously tried M33 with the 8se and wanted to give it a shot. The 8se seems to do reasonably well with the ASI071MC Pro. That said, I am probably at the limits of what I can expect from the 8se on DSO's, and the AVX mount also. I was hoping for a little brighter/more well defined image for the integration time, but I am happy with this image. Thanks for looking!
