First Light for New Guide Camera

I picked up several new things here lately. One of which is an old first generation Orion Starshoot DSCI I plan to use for guide cam duty. I have always wanted to play with one of these, but never have.

The moon was full and very bright, so I picked a relatively bright target for it's first shot. I picked the globular star cluster M3. This image is 50 ten second images stacked using the default values of the camera. Focus was off slightly, will have to do better next time.
