This is my second every Deep sky image using the QHY8 CCD camera. OK so its not great, for one the focus is out but after spending an hour try to get perfect focus I kinda gave up! Saying all that it was the first image I processed using darks, flats (taken using my homemade light box) and bias frames so I was quite pleased.

Guiding: William Optics 72 + DSI proII mono + PHD
