Capture of the Eastern Veil Nebula early this morning, first time attempting Guiding but allowed for 5 minute subs which clearly makes a difference. Still a bit of challenge on getting exact focus with manual focussing but did so using SharpCap Pro focus assistant.

Using the UHC filter, captured:
7 x 300s @ 120 gain
3 x 152s @ 130 gain
2 x 152s @ 120 gain

Thanks for looking.
