    Here's a quasi-first light* image of m43 taken with a 229mm @f9 refractor. A stack of 4 x 60 seconds with STC 7 at Med Gain and guided by an SC2. Maxim-DL for capture and PI for proc. The focuser was a decade long project, so any comments about focus appreciated.

    * Quasi-first light because 1st Light was accomplished at the start of the century using a Pentax 6x7, but 1'st time in this part of USA and setup.
