Takahashi 85-FSQ telescope, SXV-H9 Mono camera, Ha/SII/OIII filters and HEQ5 mount.

This was a new rig and I’d been waiting for ages to use it thwarted by clouds! I was pleased to get this image from the limited exposures I took (only 4 hours in total). Thankfully the 2 hours of Ha data made for a strong luminance.
