On my last member's night with my astronomy club before I moved, I borrowed the club's Celestron 8-inch SCT and CG-5 mount to test out my new ZWO ASI294MC Pro. I don't have any calibration frames for this camera yet, but I'm going to start working on that!

Not bad for 10 minute's worth of 20s frames! I think I'm going to like this camera.
