M42 - my first 'decent' attempt

LX90 (+focal reducer) , Prime focus with Sony Alpha 300, 4 dark shots and around 10 or so at 30 second exposure.

THink that's about the best I can do with Alt AZ mount. Saving up for eq6 pro !

Hi goldenblade

Yes alt az mount difficult but not impossible if you keep exposures under a minute. You need more exposures to stack take a look at mine which is 60x 1 minute exposure stacked and processed taken with a canon 1000D and Equinox 80 ED scope.
Meade 8inch  SCT. Observatory mounted on an HEQ5 Pro using EQMOD Canon 1000D modified DSLR,200mm Dobsonian, 200mm Celestron C8, 15x70 Astro Binoculars. 2x Mintron ccd cameras, lots of other stuff.
