M92 and M81. These were imaged in increasingly lightening skies with a waxing Moon. We're coming to the end of the deep sky season in the far north of Scotland but I wanted to test my newly acquired cam, the Starlight Xpress SXV-H9, with the C8 at f.8. 7x300 secs for the Cigar galaxy and 10x120 secs for the globular.

Your compositions are always a touch evocative Brian, not soulless images.
Cosmic caviar and a growling galaxy! Kind thoughts, Bob
