I used T68 of iTelescope.net (located in New Mexico, USA) to shoot the Eagle Nebula, which is not visible from my backyard observatory. The telescope, a RASA 11, is very fast (f2.3) and since I have a brand new RASA 8 here at home, ready to go into action next month, this was a great oppurtunity to see how a RASA performed.
