Update


Image below is a first light stacked image of M1 using the 16 inch F4 Telescope which was near completion in November 2012.
Image was taken on the 21/11/2012 and is a 10 minute exposure using 20 second subs. No dark, bias of falts used. Not too bad considering.
There is some coma lower right due to primary missalignment.
