First Light with the MN66

I shot this image of the Dumb-bell Nebula last night under a full moon, and a pretty stiff wind. Other than the colors being a bit washed out, it did not come out too bad. After several false starts, this is the first real image I have made using my new MN66 Maksutov-Newtonian Telescope. It seems to be a decent combo with the Orion CCD.

This image is a 9 minute LRGB composite, guided with the DSI-Pro. (The wind did make some little ovally stars).
