When i sold my Epsilon i knew i could well end up regretting it, but i have to say i'm impressed with the quality of the Esprit 100, nice round stars and a distinct lack of diffraction spikes.

Considering this is only 4 hours through a large amount of atmosphere given it's low elevation i think it has turned out okay.

It took two nights to capture the data and i had an issue with my autofocus on the second night where i lost almost 2 hours in subs that were well off focus, no idea why it happened yet. I also had an issue where my guide star would just shoot off in Dec, again needs further investigation. There's always something.

I have a serious fetish for dark nebula and the dark dust in emission nebula, so in this image i tried to highlight just that.The dark dust here obscures the emission areas and perhaps even the star thought to be the source of ionisation for the Nebula J205551.3+435225.
