This is a mosaic of 34 panes acquired on 15 August 2011. Each pane was captured as a 1000 frame avi file, stacked and sharpened in Avistack 2, then assembled manually in Photoshop. The whole image was then sharpened using a deconvolution routine in Pixinsight. This image was taken on my first night out with the C9.25 and I have to say that I am delighted with scope.
