I must say I like it. It's extremely easy to use and the results seem quite good. Obviously my selection of targets is a bit predictable but I wanted to try something bright and easy first. The image of M27 is 10 minutes made of 10x1 minute exposures. To achieve that I just set it to track and accumulate and went for a coffee. Three cheers for the National Lottery. Also attached is a surface plot from one video frame I took of one half of
Epsilon Lyra on the 21st. I thought the seeing was so good I had to do something. I think the separation is just over 2 arcsec and the peaks are about that far apart if you view from above. I'm not sure this proves anything but I liked the image!
