So finally some holidays with clear nights and after a break due to work i was able to capture some photons agains. This time i went for the Elephants Trunk nebula as it is high in the sky and fits very well in the field of view of my little refractor, and I'm pretty happy with the result I got with this mobile setup. Also it was the first time using my new modified Canon 6D, with is a huge step ahead of my old 1000D. As always critics are much appreciated!
