    Finally got the scope back from ES. The collimation was way off on their bench test. Now it is awesome. Trackinfg could of been st up better but I wanted to get some subs before the rain. The new CEM60EC showed up last night so hope to get it all set up in the observatory and get some pics.

     

    So here is my first Monkeys Head

    I have not shot the Monkey Head yet.  I really like the color.  That’s a killer shot.

    Thanks Sean. I have the new CEM60EC and hope to get it set up this weekend. I got the ES127 FCD100 back from ES and it WAS! way out of collimation. So hoping to get more subs on this target. It is NGC 2174. This was my first time shooting it and I think with more time I can get even better colors. This was my first test night with the newly returned ES127CF FCD100.
