Teleskop Express TS50mm telescope with a f/.8 focal reducer onto an Atik 314L+ camera mounted on an HEQ5 Pro Synscan in a Skyshed Pod observatory! Guided with a Lodestar x2 through an ST80 using PHD2.

This is an LRGB (15 exposures each) image of Kemble’s Cascade also showing NGC1502 in the lower left corner. The diffraction spikes were added to give slightly better clarity to the Cascade which was surprising difficult to image well and show clearly.
