First light for my new Boren Simon 8" f/2.8 PowerNewt astrograph!
Acquired for use on wide field deep-sky objects.
It has taken quite a while to sort out the setup for this new telescope, but I think it is getting there. Still some issues with coma in the corners that I am trying to work out. Still, I am encouraged by the results so far.
This is only my 2nd attempt at a narrowband image, and is really only a "rough draft" as it includes only minimal post processing.
