Pretty good for a first light, I noticed there was also a nearly full moon around as well.

I was impressed considering the conditions and that it was basically one image. The scope was slightly out of collimation too. Mainly cos I fiddled with it. 5 mins with the Hotech though has it bang on again.


Cheers
