Well, sort-of.

Grabbed 6 x 600 sec subs on M33 in Luminance. Stacked and Processed in AstroArt 7. Calibration with Dark and Flat frames only as I had neglected to do Dark Flats (Naughty boy *slapped wrist*)

That looks great Dave.  Can't believe it is first light, I recall seeing you at Astrofest saying you had ordered it, and can;t remember if that was February 2020 or 2019. 

Of course you had to wait ages for it to arrive, and have moved house and built an observatory in the last year or so, so it all adds up.

Thanks Carole and Gina

I ordered the ODk12 at Astrofest in 2019, Feb, it turned up in Oct '19 but the work on the obsy that was originally scheduled for Sept didn't start until Jan 2020 due to the washed out autumn. then Covid hit during the construction putting things back yet further with delivery delays. Plus all the niggling little things that needed attending to meant that I was only recently ready to image. the long run of cloud also delayed basic things like Polar alignment, focus, and modeling.

Still have focus issues which may be down to having a too long extension tube on the focuser so that it is right in near its zero position, giving the autofocus problems. I have a shorter ring on the way from OOUK, so we'll see.

Good to see Dave. It's been a while coming, but that's a great start with the ODK12. I look forward to seeing the final image.
